"You make your own luck" Ernest Hemingway

I have always considered myself to be extremely lucky.

Don't get me wrong, I've never won a competition in my life, I've never had a single lottery number come up, I miss trains within a whisper on a daily basis, I get caught in...

So it's a lock down. The majority of the UK along with the world are confined to their homes, apart from their one walk or grocery shop. It is an uncertain time for everyone. Financially everyone will be impacted by COVID-19. Emotionally everyone is affected by the hug...

Last week was a great week for us as BBC London did a feature on my story to try and raise awareness on undiagnosed heart conditions in young people in London.  The story featured online, on TV and radio.  If you missed it you can check it out here.

Almost 19 months on from my diagnosis and life is seemingly the most back to normal it has been. I have just returned from performing at Edinburgh festival, like I have done almost every year since 2007.

But, this year was different as my life is now different and...
