Here are eight things you probably didn’t know about me:
Hopefully things should return to a version of normal this week. Angie has been out of hospital for a week now and I have been adjusting to my new role as chief teamaker and preparer of soft boiled eggs and soldiers…
Seeing someone you love, in pain lying in bed with tubes coming out of them and not being able to do anything.
