25 years ago today, I joined the BBC. There's a lot of water gone under the bridge since then. There have been some great times both at the Beeb and in Glasgow, a lot of happy times, some great friends made and life changing loves found and lost, some memorable trips, lots of laughs. There have also been some sad times and, yep, a few tears along the road too. Life has moved on during the last 6 years post BBC, and the road is still twisty and not always smooth. But it is still a lot of fun, most of the time, and you never know which corner of the globe you'll be sent next or what's around the next corner.
I really don't know where all those years have gone though....
'It is certainly not a normal life, travelling and all that. But it is a nice abnormal life.'
