I am going to give blood for the first time this afternoon, so I am a little bit nervous, but I think it should be easy enough, my arms resemble a tube map of London and so they should find a vein.

I’ve wanted to give blood for years ever since a friend did when we were about 8 or 9.  He was given a He-Man figure so my hopes are running high.  If not a cup of tea and a biscuit will do.  But still there are a couple more reasons, firstly I thought that it may be a good idea to know my blood type as I do a lot of travelling and thats the sort of information that may come in useful, but also as this is the Year of Living Dangerously, I thought that I would give something back. 

You never know, I might end up with it back again.
