For anyone who didn't see it and wants to.... there's a long version of it here.
The First Post online magazine
(I found it harder to read and prefer the short, hardcopy version. I didn't get all the way through it cos I gave up waiting for it to load.)

Glad you read it. I meant to keep it but accidentally threw it out I think.

I'm always doing that!

Thanks jezza! - I had to go drag the magazine out of the recycle bin. Worth it though! Loved it. Some very funny comments.
:clap:

I've never been able to do that folding thing with the newspaper. Tried it once on a tram...totally embarrassed myself!

I read it in the morning before work....gotta do the crossword too.....I'm addicted.

Jezza, how do you do it? I just cant keep the paper together when reading the Age, its so big. Think you must need a degree in newspaper reading. Before we had kids, used to watch hubby read and fold it perfectly in bed for hours on a Sunday morning. Some ppl can even do it on the train. I feel deprived!!!

Mum will have yesterdays Age (another one with a gift) Will get her to save it

Read it.....loved it.

Glad others on this site read it.

Quite sad in parts though.

Loved the real photo of her & new husband.

Did anyone read the Good Weekend magazine in Saturdays Age newspaper?
It had a comic book memoir by a New York cartoonist who was dx with BC 3 weeks before her wedding. It is about 7 full pages long and well worth reading.
I liked the bit where she said she just wanted to go back to "worrying about her stupid, self absorbed, self-esteem, weight, bad skin, bad hair issues that had obsessed her her whole life"

We all know that feeling when that all that vanishes and you REALLY have something to worry about!

Funny but also a pretty good insight into what emotions you go through I thought.

Hope someone else reads it.
