Hi backers! I realise it has been far too long since I got in touch, but I wanted to give you a quick run down of the story so far (after a fashion)... I will pop in to the comments thread over the weekend if you want to ask any... Continue reading

I can no longer live with it... the guilt... the crushing weight of unfulfilled responsibility... that feeling I have left the milk out overnight and it will be lumpy and sour when I put it in my coffee in the morning... Too dramatic? So, I realise I have not left... Continue reading
