This Wasn’t the Update I Was Planning to Post

I swear to god I have about 9 drafts of updates that I keep going back to and deleting, rewriting or over criticising. It’s definitely been a rollercoaster few months/half a year and right now seems a more appropriate time than ever to talk about it.┬áThis summer Britain enjoyed temperatures reaching over 30 degrees for… Continue reading This Wasn’t the Update I Was Planning to Post
