The event was created by myself and a dedicated team of staff and volunteers at Bristol based charity The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (Nacoa). They run a vital helpline and website for the estimated 3.6 million young and adult children of alcohol-dependent parents in the UK, many of whom live in confusion and isolation.
Dearest all, I’m in London and currently looking out of a window onto the world and the clock is ticking along, getting ever closer to 1am – eek!
I had a call late yesterday from Radio 4 (as you do) asking if I could just whip up to Town and go do Woman’s Hour? Well, as you know, I’m not a girl to shy away from a bit of media, so I grabbed the opportunity to chinwag with the iconic Jenni Murray in a heartbeat!
The only trouble was/is, I have to be in the studio at 8am and the current laws of physics won’t allow for me to get up there from my neck of the woods with time to spare and as the Tardis is in for a service and MOT, I thought it best if I come up the night before.
Please indulge me breaking off the usual line today, but I want to tell you what I’m up to tonight. And anyway, it certainly connects to my Book of Rubbish Ideas, because for every single copy that’s bought, I’m making a donation to an amazing charity called NACOA.
