I remember coming in for a late shift on Wales Today and slumping to my desk, exhausted and frazzled before my working day had even begun.
It's the school holidays. I'd been trying to have some fun time with Gabriel in the morning before getting to the office.

In early June I took part in the filming of an incredibly moving story that was told on The One Show last night. Ruth Buckley had seen a previous reunion story that was broadcast in January and contacted the show for help fulfilling her late father's last wish.

It all started when we had family parties back in the 1950s at my home. There was much talk about Annie during these occasions. Apparently my great aunt was a nurse in WW1 and, as a 10-year-old boy I was curious to know more.

The Girl in the Diary is a passion project. It is a story that intrigued my father and me from the start, and one we believed would intrigue others too. After all, it's not everyday you discover your uncle was involved in a Nazi cover-up!

Those who work with me will know that I often appear in the office on a Monday morning with a lunch box generous enough to feed the entire X-Ray team.
It's not that I'm greedy (although I do love my food). Rather, I bring enough up the M4 to keep me going for the whole three-day stint I spend at Cardiff...

It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed by, but here we are gearing up to present another Royal Welsh Show. I always enjoy catching up with fellow presenters Rachael Garside and Sara Edwards and we genuinely have a great time making the programme.
