This morning I gave blood for the fiftieth time. In terms of giving blood, I am now a golden boy. The Blood Transfusion Service, after asking me all those questions about who I had sex with recently, gave me an assurance that their Fifty Pack was on the way to me.
All of this gave me a great sense of achievement and I'm quite determined now to give my life-long target of 75. I wonder how all those poor people who are walking around with my blood in them are feeling. I hope they are all OK.
My sense of joy was made complete by the Lions victory over the South Africans.
