When I started #ChallengeChooseday, I didn’t think it through properly. It was quite a good idea in my opinion but I was actually quite short sited with it. It was an idea to get me doing something different. To get me thinking differently and attempt to understand life from other perspectives. I didn’t actually think about the consequences of this.

The first person to get the reference from the title will receive a chocolate bar of their choice from me, because it is an odd one but from one of my favourite films. Anyway, where was I? In May, my older brother Joe was telling me about this incredible human being named Ross Edgley. He … More 19 – If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand thousand thousand thousand times, we need new attractions…
