You’re The Best Around

I’ve met a lot of inspirational people in my life. The calibre of people out there doing extraordinary things without recognition is astonishing. Yes, there are plenty of paid professionals out there doing amazing things but this shoutout is for the unsung heroes. The mamas, papas, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, children, neighbours, aunts and unclesContinue reading “You’re The Best Around”

I’m Still Standing

To recap, Paul had been to hospital getting his antibiotic fix via a central lineContinue reading “BLUE MOON PART 2”

Of course, Paul and I having 2 girls whom are now 8 and 10 were growing up fast, it was an opportunity to go a little…well…baby clothes shopping crazy. So I mustered up a couple of theContinue reading “You’ve Got A Friend”
