Over the last couple of months, Michael and I have had the opportunity through MACS to spend a few hours a week hanging out together; grabbing food, taking the dog for walks, swimming, trampoline parks, more food and other great days out.

Michael and MartyWe have built a great friendship which I believe has developed us both equally as people. I really look forward to getting out with Michael at the weekend and I am excited to see what the future has in store for him and I’m sure he would say the same about me.

Having the opportunity to spend my time with someone like Michael is a great privilege I’m very grateful.

If I could just get him to leave my car radio alone, things would be even better lol
