What to do when you write a weekly blog and you’re poorly? Last Friday was looming and all I could think of was (amongst another mountain of things) how am I going to write my blog and even if I do what am I going to write about?

My opening exclamation sums up how I am feeling! I’m sitting here racking my brain trying to think back to the beginning so I can tell you about my Fresh Meat experiences but today its hard to remember as all I can think about is tomorrow. It’s such a life encompassing, exhilarating and exciting experience and it has been since I was picked for the team. I’ve found it hard not to think … Read More »
