John Barrowman MBE

I'm just posting those links here so I have them always handy. I'm sure by now everyone has heard about the ceremony. For those who haven't: On Tuesday 14th October it was not only my birthday but also the day John Barrowman received his MBE. He was in Buckingham palace with his husband Scott and his parents. And they all were quite proud and beaming. Here are some pictures:
