It’s been a week of two halves; festival & friends and funeral & family. So it felt right to do two blogs covering both… this one is the more sentimental one. On Wednesday we said goodbye to my Uncle Dave. He was a terrific man. I have so many phenomenal but daft memories of him. […]Read More London is where I fit.
