Most Haunted Series Four – #6

This week the Scooby Gang visited a small hotel in County Durham called The Manor House – a lovely looking former orphanage with a gruesome past. Well, there didn’t appear to have been much of..

It’s a girl!

This morning at about 07:30 UK time, my sister gave birth to my new niece, Jessica Anne. She was 7lb 3oz and so lazy that she was 10 days overdue. If her sister Hannah is..
