An inconspicuous-looking white envelope dropped through my letterbox last week. Inside it contained an invitation to participate in the NHS's cervical screening programme. Do you know what I did next? I put it in the bin.

How difficult it can be at times to spot your grief for mummy. While we quite rightly do not use it as an excuse for every minor indiscretion, it is at times so glaringly obvious that the very worst you can ever throw at me is undeniably a direct consequence of the turmoil you occasionally feel inside. Yet although I know and accept its origins, why do I always allow it to hit me so personally and so deeply?

It's really significant to me that the boys have opened their 'charity account'. The fact they chose Marie Curie who cared for their mum and Grief Encounter who have made their loss less painful indicates they understand what it means to give back and to pay gratitude.

We are a very happy camp right now, I will always share what I find difficult about parenting because without this I would not have made such complete progress, to admit to a problem is not to show weakness, it's to invite the good people amongst us to pick us up and send us off in the right direction.

My diagnosis was cervical cancer. I was 32, had a five-year-old and a one-year-old who were reliant on me. Very quickly during the following weeks I had a partial hysterectomy, and intense chemotherapy which intensified over the space of the following six months.

Big Brother Bullying: What Exactly is Everyone Complaining About?

You see Ofcom is there to regulate the broadcasters and their editorial judgement, not the Big Brother housemates. As a man of (admittedly self-diagnosed) sane mind and moral I do indeed object to any bullying that occurs in the house but that alone does not a valid complaint make.

A quarter of a million women worldwide will have died of cervical cancer by the time 2011 draws to a close. That's roughly one death every two minutes. Of those, around 900 are British women - and sadly, many of these deaths could have been prevented by a simple cervical screening.
