Recap part 1: Breakfast in the ‘burbs

Eating too much and not having enough time to blog is a running theme, and ongoing problem… I am officially overwhelmed with the number of posts I have to trawl through before being anywhere close to being up to date, not to mention the enormous amount of digital processing I have to do for my … Continue reading
