  • Mijas Television Interview

    Well, I was feeling terrified as I prepared for my first TV interview in Spain. The worst part was waiting in reception for what seemed an eternity before we went on air. My tummy was turning somersaults, but I need not have worried. The interviewer was great and made me feel at ease, so that I forg...
