Monthly Round-Up – January 2014

Monthly Round-Up – January 2014 Well aside from the obvious of getting over Christmas, dealing with being back at work with no holiday in sight until the summer, and trying to cope with the cold weather – January has actually been an OK month (well compared to previous years anyway!). My mum is doing a little bit better so that was a bit of good news for a change. January […]
