My Latest Obsession

How quickly another year rolls around. Perhaps because our perception of time is so wildly different as children but as an adult time just flies. It is strange to think we have already been based in this post-war new town for over five years now. We moved into our home on New Years Eve 2015. […]

Have A Little Faith In A Higher Love

Little did I know of the importance of a simple song recommendation from my sister Samantha on Thursday 18th July 2019 at 17:52 UK time (which was 20:52 local time for my sibling over in the UAE). For some reason, this cover version had passed me by – as has been noted previously, I rarely […]
