His chicken sandwiches were amazing, and to this day I still can't make a chicken sandwich as nice as his.

Healthy Training for Sensitive Stomachs

Maximising your Training Photos: Pexels As many of you will be aware: I love animals; actually it’s more than that… I don’t think there is a word strong enough. Obsessed maybe? I always get distracted by the little bundles of joy, so if you ever see me, don’t expect me to continue listening if there is a dog, cat or bird…
