Things You Might Not know about Me and other musings!

I was reviewing my Blog posts and come across this: Things you may not know about me. Had a little laugh and decided to update. Take a peek for yourself. 1. I was born and raised in east London before moving to Kent at around 8 or 9 years of age. In London, we lived around the corner from the Ross Family.
