Gene Wilder

Such sad news about the death of Gene Wilder. The wonderful girls at Addictive Daughter tweeted this picture and I love it so much I thought I would share it here:

Rio 2016 Olympics

The opening of the Rio 2016 Olympics bought back happy memories of this time 4 years ago when we were celebrating the London Olympics. 

I dug out my Games Maker uniform (and put it on) and the letter from the Prime Minister AND the silver relay baton I received as a thank you.


During my recent visit to Wimbledon, I was given access to the Media centre and sat in the bar near Seb Coe - I WISH I had gone up to him to say I was one of "his team". 

It involved lots of early starts and late nights but without doubt the best job I've ever ever had.

It Affects Me

The following short piece of writing was bought to my attention by one of my favourite Twitter accounts - @itaffectsme - their aim is to encourage people to talk about mental illness and I strongly feel this is something we should ALL be aiming for. 

Stigma will always win if we don't fight it and talk. 


They are organising a super sounding I Am Normal Festival on 28th August - sadly I can't go but you should !

Their website is great too - http://www.itaffectsme.co.uk/
