    I am taking on the Kerry Challenge in aid of Debra Ireland to support the 300 people living with EB across Ireland. This involves 3 days of hiking the wild Kerry terrain in Dingle.  Please visit my page www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11431443

    Have been practicing actively listening.  I have a bad habit of interrupting people - managing to stop this!
