It was great to see everyone again at WelcomeFest on Friday. Moss House really came alive for the day and there was something for everyone. So, if you missed out in favour of another duvet day, then it was a big mistake! Apart from the […]
A slippery slope
A heavy cold has meant I have been watching more of the Winter Olympics than is perhaps good for me. And I have got to ask myself why? (Why I have been watching it, that is.) Well, I reckon it just boils down to my […]
