Media attention

A lot has happened since the last time I logged onto my blog. The media has become involved, all by chance.
I had a call from my solicitor and was asked if I would take part in a piece to camera that was being done by the BBC who were invesigating asbestos.
I was going to go to the media with my story after I had a final figure as I didn't want to damage my case but I was assured that nothing I would say would damage the case.

The journalist arrived with a camera man and did the interview and went away and I thought no more of it until my phone rang.
Another photographer, ITV, Local paper and journalists were all interested.

Silly me got myself in a pickle with journalists from an agency who took advantage of a very naive person. Ended up as a story in a magazine that was nothing at all like my life.
I couldn't get out of it as I had signed a contract. I won't be doing that again in a hurry!
I would like to say a lovely big thankyou to a lady who wishes to remain anon and with her kind donation paid off some bills and bought a laptop to carry on my work with this website.
