SARAH PULLEN is told her son is going to die. Diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in August 2012, Silas, ten, is given less than 18 months to live. In this raw and honest account, the mother of four reveals the unbearable pain of losing her child. THERE is a moment I wish my son dead. I wish for him to be killed instantly in a car crash. Can you imagine wishing your child dead? It’s not something I would ever have thought possible, not until a stranger in a crisp Italian suit and polished leather shoes tells me that my ten-year-old son is going to die in a matter of months. That he’ll die a tortuous and undignified death that will rob him of his personality long before his heart finally stops beating. We stand in a small hospital playroom, my husband Ben and I. Across the room from us perches a consultant. He asks us: “Do either of you have a heart condition?” We shake our heads. We are here to talk about our son’s health, not our own. … [Read more...] about A mother’s heartbreaking and painful account of losing her son to cancer

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Rafa Benitez believes he shares the "same objective" for Newcastle United's future as Mike Ashley - namely that they both "want the club to win". The Newcastle boss revealed on Thursday that he will sit down with the Sports Direct magnate, who rang Benitez to congratulate him and the squad on promotion, before the season is out in order to best consider how the club can move forward. Many have questioned whether Ashley's ambitions for Newcastle will match those of serial-winner Benitez - who has lifted nine major trophies during his career, including the Champions League and two Spanish titles. Yet the Spaniard is hopeful that Ashley does hold similar aspirations for the club. "I will not say anything about that," Benitez replied when asked if he could leave this summer despite the fact he has 24 months remaining on the redrawn three-year … [Read more...] about Rafa Benitez: Why Mike Ashley and me share the same objective for Newcastle Uniteds future
A Doncaster town centre record store has closed down - and transferred its business online due to "personal circumstances." The Notorious Aardvark in Waterdale shut up shop at the end of last week, announcing its demise via its Facebook page. Store owner Simon Saynor wrote: "So that's it, give or take an hour. The shop is no more. "We will still be selling on line with over 2000 items listed. Plenty more to add - I'll have time to do that now. "Thank you to every single person who has shopped at The Notorious Aardvark Record Shop. It's been emotional xxx" In an earlier post, it was revealed the closure was down to "personal circumstances."

FameFlynet Don't stand in the way of loyal Directioners! The boys of One Direction, including Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne, touched down at London's Heathrow airport upon returning home after wrapping up their wildly successful 2013 Take Me Home tour. The hunky boybanders received a warm welcome as they arrived from Tokyo, where they played their final show after kicking off their tour in the U.K. nearly a year ago. A throng of teenage girls quickly mobbed 19-year-old Styles, who appeared overwhelmed by the large number fans—with their iPhones in hand—all attempting to snap a selfie with the British hunk. NEWS: One Direction performing at the American Music Awards The look on Harry's face is priceless as he stands engulfed in the group of girls, wearing a plaid shirt and backwards baseball cap while pursing his lips together. "So that's it," Styles wrote on social media Sunday night after the final 1D show followed by a … [Read more...] about Harry Styles Gets Mobbed by Fans as One Direction Arrives in London—See the Pic!
Good morning sunshine! One Direction singer Harry Styles was photographed leaving Sketch Restaurant in London today, and although he looks handsome as always, it seemed like the boybander wasn't up for actually styling his full head of hair since he opted to sport a David Beckham-inspired tiny ponytail, along with a big coat and skinny jeans. Hey, no judging. Harry is probably still groggy from his very lengthy nap. The hunky 19-year-old tweeted earlier today, "Sooo, I've been asleep for about 3 days. Breakfast?" NEWS: One Direction performing at the American Music Awards Why, yes, breakfast sounds lovely! Clearly, Styles was over exaggerating about how long he was in La-La Land, because he was spotted being mobbed by fans on Tuesday, after he and his bandmates touched down at London's Heathrow airport upon returning home from their wildly successful 2013 Take Me Home tour, which wrapped in Tokyo. "So that's it," he wrote on social media Sunday night after the final 1D show followed … [Read more...] about Harry Styles Resurfaces With David Beckham-Inspired Hairstyle After Sleeping for “3 Days”
