After the excitement of Wales winning the Six Nations Championship on Saturday, yesterday I came back down to earth with a bump, by spending the day organising my office!
Tedious though it sounds, I actually had a lot of fun sorting through photographs of my time at ITV Wales to put in frames to go on the walls. So instead of a usual post, today I’m bringing you my first photo blog so I can share my pictures with you – I hope you enjoy them!
This was one of my earliest but most memorable reports – I was cut out of a car live on air by a team of firefighters who had just won The Extrication Championships
I met Chris Evans at the All Stars charity Golf Tournament at the Celtic Manor. He was as funny in real life as he is on the radio!
Bobby Ewing from Dallas aka Patrick Duffy was at the same charity golf event – what a lovely man.
