Gone was the old stiff Frankenboob, with its wonky edges and hard bits, gone was the annoying pipe that stuck in to my ribs, gone are the days of pumping up the jam. All gone. Frakenboob is now more. Lefty has risen from the operating table like a boob shaped phoenix and has been reborn as a real life (or very close to it) boobie! And he feels amazing.
Since I turned 40 not so long ago (oh, it was six years ago), I've really focused my attention on raising money for Tickled Pink. Tickled Pink raises money for Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign and it means a lot to us at Asda. It was founded 16-years-ago and we've raised nearly 29 million, there or there abouts.
Evelyn Lauder was a true inspiration; she had personal experience of breast cancer and was determined to address a crucial lack of funding in breast cancer research at the time. She led the pink power movement that lit up iconic buildings in pink across the world and got people everywhere taking about breast cancer.
One of my Twitter followers, @CallumJonesBlog, suggested that instead of writing my blog this week, I could possibly get away with. "Carla is away drinking Pimm's in the sun". Which, right now, sounds a rather fantastically brilliant idea. Instead I want to blog about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which kicked off yesterday and, if you're a woman, you probably identified by all the pale pink beauty products flooding the shelves of your local Boots, promising a percentage of profits to such-and-such a charity.
