What a difference a year makes August 17, 2010 by This is Fran a year ago, she had it on her phone. She’d just had her operation and got back home. Still a little girl then. She asked me to take this the other day, so she could send it in to CBBC. The two photos popped into circulation on the same day quite by chance and really made me catch my breath. She grew up while I didn’t realise I wasn’t looking.
