Who’s someone you really admire?
My Dad because he is in his eighties and partially blind and has gone through many health issues from cancer to heart attacks but gets through it all and carries on with a smile on his face and his usual dry sense of humour. My Mam (it’s a Teesside thing 😊) looks after my Dad and she is very inspirational for the love, care and support she gives him. And my husband Martin Jamieson, who works extremely hard, but still has the time to be extremely supportive to me and who makes me laugh every day, he’s my rock.
