Pregnancy Test 😮

“I'm not sure I trust these tests, they were the cheapest ones I could buy” Anna said as she had the pregnancy stick in her hand. She continued, “You wanna watch me dunk this in wee?” “Alright, dunk it in” I replied. Anna was now doing our very first pregnancy test...

How to keep sane in lockdown

Here's a vlog with me and my partner in crime, Anna McNuff, doing a little adventure out of the house to keep sane from lockdown. As you can imagine, Anna and I as adventurers aren’t the best types for staying indoors and we need to be ‘let off the lead’ to go for a...

Helping people through Motivational Speaking…

Helping people through Motivational Speaking…

After finishing my latest adventure, 200 marathons solo across Canada (doing so dressed as superhero, The Flash!) - raising more than £250,000 for the children’s charities that helped me as a very sick kid - I’d be lying if I said I was on top of the world. Once I’d...
