Well yesterday I had the delight of visiting BBC Coventry & Warwickshire for a radio interview with the lovely Annie Othen about my Pectus Excavatum. Now if you listen to the interview (which is available on the BBC iPlayer here until next Wednesday [6th March] - I'm on just after about 2hrs) or you can listen to my segment below (no time limit), you will notice one thing... which I totally didn't think I was doing, however my Brother and The Mother both told me about it, which is that I kept saying "erm" so...

Well what an interesting day!
Firstly, I received a call this afternoon from the producer on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire after she had emailed me through my blog (*yay*) asking if I was happy for an interview about my current ordeal with my operation.

We were told that we'd get the same speeds as we did at the old house as soon as we moved into the new house, well as you may have guessed, we didn't. We usually got speeds of 9-10Mbps at the old house and now we're at the new house, we're lucky to get 600Kbps! (Yes, 0.6Mbps!) Which sadly isn't enough to watch anything on YouTube, BBC iPlayer - let alone listen to the radio online either.
Just a small rant this morning... the BBC News website is running a story about a Charity doing research into sex in prisons in the UK and upon reading it I noticed a certain Ms Crook stating (near the bottom of the article)
"If you have a 15-year-old who is jailed for two years, they are missing out on what their friends are getting which is the development of their relationships, girlfriends and so on".
My response - well two - to that is A) Some may have boyfriends - get real and with the times and B) They did... [read more]
