About time I gave you faithful readers an update really! It’s been more than a while…

So, firstly, I’m sorry for not updating you lately. If I’m totally honest, I’ve not felt like it, not really felt able to, and then work got in the way. I know that’s shit, but unfortunately, it’s the way my damn life is!
