The Crystal Maze

The Secret Box

So, this is a thing now! Seems every Thursday, I’m going to be reminding you all that I have a podcast. It’s just me at the moment, recalling events from my life and sharing my creativeness with you. In this week’s episode, I’m sharing a spooky story that I wrote when I was ten-years-old called The Secret Box. In the future, I hope to have different people from my life asking me questions and getting me to open up about topics that I might not have thought of.

I found this week’s topic difficult. No, not the reading my story out-loud part! Or the part where I reminisce fondly about watching The Crystal Maze on a Thursday! The part I found hard to discuss was going into detail about how it came to be that I go into hospital so often for Blood Transfusions. I’ve never talked about it, and I was a bit worried about it all sounding too clinical and off-putting. I am weird, but my hope is to make the weird things in my life seem as normal to you as they do to me.
