“And now, my watch has ended”

Posted on

Any G.O.T. fans will know exactly what that heading means…… but I have a slightly different slant on it.  In my last blog, ‘Living with a death sentence’ I asked the question, how do you tell someone they’ve only got 3 weeks to live.  Well, I can now answer that for myself.  Quite simply, you […]
