Going Gently fame whose blog I have been following for several years. John Gray is a house husband to Chris and they live in a cottage in the sleepy Welsh village of Trelawnyd. His daily posts are an entertaining read and will leave you laughing, crying or even wondering! He works night shifts as a nurse on a trauma unit, volunteers as a Samaritan, looks after a menagerie of animals including three terriers, Winnie the bulldog, a rabbit catching cat, Camilla the Canadian goose and a field full of animals.
He is kind, open and authentic but uses colourful language for added impact on an occasion! He also talks far too candidly about his animals toilet habits, but they are the kinds of posts that attract the most comments to his blog! He is an avid The Walking Dead fan despite the rest of his audience not being so enthusiastic!
Last year John invited blog readers to take part in the novelty vegetable category at the show being held in the village. We made our entries and posted the photos off to John. They was all put on display around the village hall and came from countries around the globe (he has an international following you know?)
Anyway, to wrap up this post, the most memorable thing about John is his passion for Scotch eggs. I even succumbed to the subliminal messages I have received from his blog posts over the years and bought myself one for lunch today. I blame John Gray. You can read one of his Scotch egg posts here.
