Hello UK, my name is Mette, I have MS and I live in the middle of Denmark in a small town. I'm 41 years old, married to my soulmate, who's British, and together we have two lovely, funny, naughty, cute, strong children - Grace Lily, 11 and Jesse, 9.
I’m writing this post for National Poetry Day. It’s a day when people all over the country will be reading, writing, watching or listening to poems. I love the fact we have a National Poetry Day because writing poems and performing them is one of my favourite things to do.
