It starts here

So, where does my story start. I guess it could begin 36 years ago in Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital. Born in London, raised in London, and now ... leaving London.

Through my childhood I was brought up with the idea that to get where you want in life you just need to work hard and put the effort in, as I'm sure many of us are told. I believed it all, as would any child and I'm quite sure those words when told were true.

That's not reality anymore, not in London anyway. This is my story of opting out of the new reality.
