Uncategorized Mar 03, 2020

A lot of people have been asking where I have been for the past 6 months and that’s a very good question. The truth is, I have just been going through a very busy time and something had to give!

My last post was in October, so what’s been going on since then? Well, first of all, I was studying for an exam in November which was pretty much all consuming as the big day approached (I am pleased to say that I passed!).
