Swan Syndrome

I’m not much of a crier. Life doesn’t really make me cry, the only times I’ve ever really been known to cry is whilst watching a sad film (actually hyperventilated during The Notebook – snotfest alert) or a programme on TV. Although, I’d concede I can be quite emotional, I still wouldn’t call myself a crier [...]
