Greetings from my home town - from 100 feet in the air
Just came home from watching an amazing magician and mind reading show! They did so many brilliant tricks. My mind is still baffled! There was no rabbit being pulled out of a hat unfortunately but I thought this picture was really cute!
Great news of a successful campaign...
In February 2016, a Matter community member and student carer started a campaign calling for a tick box on UCAS forms which would prompt young adult carers to identify themselves so that universities could easily find out whether applicants would be studying as well as caring unpaid, for someone with an illness, disability, mental health problem or an addiction.
Carers Trust backed the campaign and in just six weeks more than 2,500 signatures poured in to show their support.
Yeah I don't eat much when it's sunny his dreading that's it's going to be 31 degrees. I'm not very good when it's sunny.
Interview tommorow so nervous
