      Hi Zola, i'm working at a production company and we are looking for people to participate in a video for a supermarket, promoting healthy eating to help improve diabetes. The video will be of someone with type 2 diabetes cooking a delicious healthy meal with our presenter (who has a background in nutrition) chatting whilst cooking in a home environment. You can contact me at emma@maltfilms.com or on 02070332812

        I sold him Randburg. It broke my heart but I have lung disease and I really shouldn't have got him in the first place. I miss him dreadfully but I don't miss the mess !!
