Since I haven't posted anything for some time now? Not written anything new for even longer? Well, I haven't promised anyone anything in that way.

I've also continued … Continue reading Worst blogger ever?

I did have help from the weather to do that. It was awful. The rain was pouring down bucket-wise, and it was … Continue reading Sofa weekend
