The Funkiest Fabric Around

As you’ll be able to see, I have managed to complete one of my New Years resolutions from my last post – getting my own domain name! A few lovely people have followed me already, and are most likely quite confused as to how I’m getting so many posts out after only being here for…

Balancing Act

I’m reasonably okay at getting in from school and getting on with homework straight after dinner (I have a little rest first),…
