Back in 2009-ish, when I was a student at St Andrews, I was elected into a Position of Responsibility - note the capitals! I joined the Societies Committee of the Students' Association - otherwise known
A couple of weekends ago, I spent a Sunday afternoon with one of my best friends. I'm lucky that my move back to St Andrews has been cushioned by a few very good friends, who have dragged me out to have

Stacey and I have now lived together for three years. Technically, it's three years and one day today since we moved to Edinburgh together, in a little flat about 300 meters from where we live now, and
