Happy New Year! I've been ridiculously busy and was ill (again) around Christmas time. Only had a couple of days off work and then into the new year... I beat the post-Christmas blues by taking two weeks holiday from work - and moving house! It's been hard and I'm nowhere near completely moved yet, but … Continue reading Moving into 2020!

I couldn't post on social media (not properly), everything I thought seemed to bland and uninteresting to tell anyone about. Like I said, darkness and dragons. But, I've slowly regained my spark, … Continue reading Hiatus
I didn't get to post this before the new year started, but what the hell, better late than never. My first resolution is to read more!
