Yesterday was fun! 8

After several months of silence and keeping a secret I broke it rather loudly. I put an announcement on the big screen of a televised and sold out rugby match. Yup, it’s true. I proposed back in early January, I had it booked just 2 days later. I’ve waited many years, I wasn’t going to waste time planning. Haha.

Sarah’s Story – a brave post 1

The following post is a brave post by Sarah, it’s an account of abuse she suffered from as a teenager. This story may upset readers, so do not read if likely to be “triggered” by this post.

Ten things about me 2

About me, ten unusual things, that sounds easy enough? 1. I am ambidextrous. I can write with either hand, I do some things instinctively right handed, some left and certain things I have no preference at all. 2. I wrote in mirror writing before learning to write the normal way. My primary school teachers often marked my work with a mirror as I’d forget which direction was normal. 3. I can’t do forward rolls or anything like that but I can get my feet to my head. Not quite behind my head like some kind of yoga ninja, but I could (not that I want to) bite my toenails.
