I’ve been very fortunate that through a lot of hard work over the years, I’ve been able to have had many opportunities. For my 13th Birthday (literally the day of my birthday) my older sister gave me her paper-round to start that day (the legal age I was able to start work).

One evening, I realised I was running out of my favourite coffee .. so in the process of buying more, I signed myself up to the ‘Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2013/14’, and will soon spend around 11 months travelling 40,000 miles with a crew of 24!

However, I’m also involved various businesses that continue to… Continue reading Don’t be fooled by appearances
I had a very nice visit last week, from my Great Uncle and Great Aunt, Owen and Peg, who were over visiting from the USA.
