Wednesday, 8th May 2019. 09.18 It was pissing down this morning so I gave Louis a lift to school. I returned home. Twenty minutes later I was at Carter’s. Being at home was like breathing soup.

Going Gonzo – Choose.

Tuesday, 19th February 2019. 20.31 When you sprinkle a little “fun” on things, the prospects always seem brighter.
