Story

I got a message about 3 weeks or so ago asking if I'd do Strictly Manx. I'm both crazy and stupid so I obviously said yes. I figured that it's for charity and every so often, you should try things out of your comfort zone. Okay so that's a little bit of an understatement - It's so far out of my normal realm that I may as well be on another planet. I knew what people were going to say as soon as they found out, but hey, everyone likes a laugh and it's sold a few tickets! 

I've chosen Parent2Parent because I think it's a very worthwhile charity. They offer support and guidance to parents of children going through difficulties with depression and mental health issues. Without going into too much detail, I look back sometimes and I can't imagine what it must have been like for my parents when dealing with the issues I faced in high school. It isn't just the children who need the support, parents need it too. 

I think it's going relatively well so far. Let's just not mention the d word. 

Dungarees. They'd look great on the dance floor....

Please give generously.
