Well, despite the freezing cold weather there does seem to be a lot more optimism around at the moment. Who would have thought that we’d be so excited about meeting people outdoors in April! I just hope the news coverage of the AstraZeneca vaccine doesn’t put people off having the jab. I had mine aContinue reading “Brrrr – It’s April!”
As we end a bizarre, scary and damn right destructive year, I wanted to take some time to reflect on what I’ve learnt.
