This week, the mighty All-Father of Marvel, the incredible Stan Lee passed away. A stranger to me, yet his ideas helped shape the man I am today. I know that’s an odd thing to say, but I know that many fans will echo the sentiment.

I felt so British. “London?! Then what the hell are you doing here in St Louis?!” Well, we had learnt something within minutes of arriving. The city wasn’t called St “Louieeee”, like the way we say in when we think of any Famous French…

My boyfriend walked into the bedroom with a black cooler bag saying “He’s been, he’s been!” It wasn’t Christmas though, it was just a regular Monday morning. But it was my first day trying Fresh Fitness Food for a week. I responded to him with a ‘Yay!’ before explaining that these were for me, not for him. That didn’t go down very well.
