A quick catch-up!!!

First things first I need to apologise for my laziness. It’s been 16 days since I last actually wrote a blog. I am not going to chastise myself too much because in that time I have published the newsletter, trialled a few audio blogs, not to mention the fact that I have run over 480km. What […]
