As a busy working mother she agonises about her future and the effect her treatment regime will have on her family. Then, one of Alison's friends sets u...p a roster and a home-cooked meal is brought to the Jones family each day.

As Alison and her family negotiate her first year with cancer the daily meals become the constant in their lives, bringing them together around the dinner table each evening.

When her son is also tragically diagnosed with cancer she is there to support him. Warm, honest and engaging, and including some recipes that sustained Alison and her family, The Jones Family Food Roster will touch your heart and inspire you to reach out to your community.

              Bitter Sweet: Indigenous Women in the Pacific
                

              Bitter Sweet: Indigenous Women in the Pacific (EPUB ebook)

              Edited by Herda, Phyllis; Jones, Alison; Suaalii, Tamasailau M.

              The South Pacific has long represented the possibilities of a pure space, outside the ambivalences of a 'developed' world. But the indigenous women of this region often speak of the bitter sweetness of their experiences. Pacific women's multiple engagements with work and with sov...ereignty politics, as well as with their portrayal in film, poetry and tourism, are at the heart of this book. The contributors address the interesting, ongoing questions of representation and identity, as well as their place in the shifting politics of the contemporary Pacific.

              Life-changing stuff from the Bramley Iron Mums: inspirational stories from ordinary women, insights into why women run (and why they don't), tips and training plans, tools for reflection and planning. For any woman who wants to run her life but doesn't know where to start. From t...he introduction: 'We want this book to change things. We want to change the way you feel about yourself, and about life. Ideally, we want you to get only a few pages into this book before casting it aside, pulling on your trainers, and heading out the door for a run. Many books aiming to inspire are big on grandiose, beautifully constructed and uplifting statements. We haven't got many of those. What we DO have, in spades, are real stories from real women who have discovered that running makes them happy in a variety of ways, many of them completely unexpected. And if as we hope their enthusiasm inspires you to try it for yourself, we also have some very practical advice to help you start.' Reviews from Amazon: 'If you've thought about taking up running but aren't sure where to start, this is the perfect book. It's based on tried-and-tested beginners' plans used by the Iron Mum running group and is full of inspirational comments from women who've been through the programme. There's also lots of excellent advice on practicalities, written by people who know what they're talking about. Although it's primarily aimed at women with children, most of what's in it is applicable to anyone starting to run. You can't help but be inspired to get out there and give it a try.' 'A great read, that is succinct and yet full of useful pointers, bags of motivation and if you already run, a little pat on the back of what you have achieved so far. Being new to running, it has reminded me of some of the early tips and given me some ideas for future runs, e.g. writing down goals, breathing deep for stitch and great shopping tips! I am feeling invigorated for my next run, it does exactly what it says in the title
