The Craziest Day, One Year On…12 Days of Christmas
This day last year was possibly – probably – the most insane day of my life.
Late the night before, the New Year’s Honours List was released. I was the youngest on the list, being awarded a BEM for services towards the promotion of Organ Donation. Read More »
Reasons…12 Days of Christmas
Everything happens for a reason. What will be will be. It is what it is.
Those ‘fate will have its way’ sayings…what does everyone think of them?

Once Upon A Christmas…12 Days of Christmas
Once upon a Christmas…
So. We’ve all had our dinner, we are suitably stuffed with Celebrations, and the torn wrapping paper leaves a trail of destruction under the tree.
The whole family is together. Someone is probably asleep on the sofa and there is most likely a Christmas special on the T.V. Read More »
