Basically, there…… Continue reading My 2018 Guidelines
Happy New Year to everyone who follows (or reads but doesn’t follow!) my little blog. Well done if you’ve followed this all year, it’s certainly been a busy one! I know for a fact before I even start writing about these goals properly that some haven’t been met. And you know what? I’m not going…… Continue reading 17 for 2017-December (and Final!) Update
