Forty Two

Today I celebrate my forty-second birthday. This is significant as my mother died at this age. And so this age has been ingrained in my brain. I dreaded its arrival while at the same time I couldn’t wait to move beyond this number as in a weird way, I felt like I needed to reach this age before life could really begin. So can’t wait for it all to happen. While things have progressed, on the personal front (dating/relationships/family), they have also been at a standstill for the last decade or so. Shame really.

Gabby Douglas: The Flying Squirrel

Thus, to think that he could be at centre of British power is scary. The man is all […]

London 2012 Olympics: Opening Ceremony

As one of 300 Mechanicals during the London 2012 Opening Ceremony, I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life last Friday night. So what did it mean to be a Mechanical? Well, my job was to get the audience involved in the show. And dressed like a Super Mario Brother, I had a bag full of props and an earpiece to help prompt me at various points throughout the 3 1/2 hour show. It was a bit nerve racking with 80,000 people in the stadium never mind the billion+ television audience watching but oh so exciting. And […]
