…when I was heavily pregnant with my third child, and found myself increasingly housebound. It was a difficult pregnancy, and I couldn’t do much. However, the one thing I was able to do was catch up on my favourite TV shows, and ended up watching every single reality show going,” laughed Lisa.

Hmmm… since we topped the 2.5 million mark in January, perhaps it’s time to knock on a few doors….
