After doing my half marathon in August, I decided I would like a change of scenery for a while. I didn’t want to get unfit again though, so I joined a local gym.

Some of you may notice that I haven’t been too active on WordPress lately. I haven’t stopped wanting to write, I have just had a lot more going on in my life recently. My previous job made me redundant, but I have since started a new one, and I am still settling in a new […]Read More Changes Ahead.
