Long Time Since An Update

Well it’s been a few months since I last updated but to be honest I’ve had so much go on in my life these last months what with my depression and SAD kicking in during November, and December being a bad month for things, come January I lost my little fur boy Biscuit due to […]

18 years ago I’d think nothing of hopping on my exercise bike whilst cranking up the headphones listening to In The Mix 96 Volume 2 (the best one from that collection in my opinion – said with her music head on) and cycle for a good couple of hours without getting phased.  These days I have […]
