Health round-up: A look back at 2013

Can you believe it’s nearly the end of 2013 already?! I can’t quite frankly.

I felt the tears well in my eyes as I sat and watched my eldest daughter Nakita 14 singing a solo this evening at a school performance. She stole the show, her voice was pitched perfect and when the room erupted in applause I was fit to burst with pride. I have always strived to […]
