I feel like I haven't spent much time at home lately. This is partly due to the fact that I have spent a large amount of it away, either on Scout Camp or in Devon.

Earlier this month I became a statistic. Treat yourself as a priority, wear a mask and keep your distance from the great unwashed.
Month +18: Moving Slowly
Month +18: Moving Slowly - The focus is not really on the destination, but the journey...

Life is a bit like flying a helicopter. I have no idea how to fly a helicopter.
