Good Omens: Adapted from TV

So… one of my favourite things is the Amazon Prime TV adaptation of the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel “Good Omens”.

Best Man’s Speech for my “Little” Brother

So on the 18th June 2022 my little brother, Daniel, married Helena: a wonderful woman who he met at Exeter University. I was asked to be best man, which was a great honour.

Thankfully, through the power of modern technology I was able to give the speech, albeit as a disembodied voice. And here it is!
