This weekend I had a Marty McFly moment and went back to the past. Sadly I didn’t use the DeLorean to get there, just my everyday car, but I still had an exciting, at times daunting, and enjoyable experience. The adventure started when my former employer, ITV Wales, asked me to work a weekend shift. […]

Last night I settled down in front of my television to watch my good friend, Shazia Awan, take part as a panellist on BBC 3’s Free Speech. While I didn’t agree with everything she said, I thought she made her points in a clear and concise way and I was proud of her performance. But […]

Yesterday I went out for Sunday lunch to celebrate my mum’s and brother’s birthdays. The conversation and company were fantastic, and my cheese souffle was delicious, then we had the added bonus of bumping into an old family friend at the resturant. “Aunty” Edana, as we used to call her, gave my brother and me extra English […]
