The Tame Behind the Site: Contents

Click here for A Brief History, where there's a little story of my life so far and how I ended up in the situation I am now in.

The Rat Race describes my attitude towards what used to be a huge obstacle for me - something that I now appreciate is only there if you want it to be.

In Life & Chocolate I tell of my love for chocolate-chip cookies and how they play an important role in my life.

In Epilepsy - My blessing in disguise, learn of the special relationship I have with the condition I was diagnosed with having at the age of sixteen.

My Education provides a little background on my time at the Hereford Waldorf School, a little private school in the heart of Herefordshire that set me off on the right foot. It also explains what was behind my U-turn in thinking on university, which has resulted in my decision to commit to five years of study.

You might also want to ponder The Daily Mumble.
