Case 3 – Concoction Confusion
Donor – Stinky Pete
I had a chat with a friend of mine who attempted to give blood a few weeks ago. However they wouldn’t let him donate because of the the ‘drugs’ he was taking at the time. He explained to me that they were for a very personnal mental issue. I obviously didn’t ask any more and just expressed my concern for a quick recovery, and said that once he had dealt with his problem maybe he could try again.
Case 2 – Rugby Rupture
Donor – Michael Stubbs
When I went to give blood in Storrington, West Sussex I found that I couldn’t due to having a transfusion myself in 2002. This transfusion was as a result of losing a kidney during a rugby match while playing for Ruthin Rugby Club Under 16′s.
- Michael back playing rugby again after his horrific accident.

Sausage and Bacon – Round 5 (the hidden post!)
Round 4’s win was based on the combination of ‘surprise and baking’. For what could be the final round I was ready to unleash a new component into the mix – ‘volume’.
THE PLAN… Once I’d secured the victory in Round – 4 I instantly started planning Round – 5. It was time to take it up and notch and arrive all gun’s blazing. It was time to call in a favour – the phone call… (more…)
Sausage and Bacon – Round 4
THE BRUNCH PLAN… With Sara’s appetite improving I knew there was a chance at a ‘second breakfast’ or ‘Brunch’ option. With this option the element of surprise was strongly in my corner again, also with her appetite still being low it would guarantee a good feed for me.
However with the experience of the last few days I realised the element of surprise alone may not be enough. Therefore I backed this up, as many do in a crisis, I baked! (more…)
Sausage and Bacon – Round 3
MONDAY EVENING… As I was leaving on Monday night I couldn’t stop thinking about the next morning’s breakfast…
I said ‘What would you like for breakfast?’
She said ‘I’m fine with weetabix, we’ve had a lot of fried breakfasts’ (more…)
Sausage and Bacon – Round 2
After spending most of the early hours preparing my strategy for today’s breakfast, I awoke with a focused goal and a clear mind.
THE PLAN… Go to the canteen before seeing Sara and order 2 sausage and bacon baps – hope she can only manage a half (as then its 1 and a half for me), but be pleased if she manages a whole bap as it means her appetite is improving. (more…)
Sausage and Bacon – Round 1
I asked Sara this morning if she wanted anything from the canteen…
She said ‘no I’m not really hungry’.
So I went down and brought up one bacon and sausage bap.
She said ‘what have you got there?’
I said ‘sausage and bacon’.
she said ‘oh yeah’.
