More Of The Same Old.

Hiya, . Greetings from the unluckily rain sodden part of the UK. . I don’t know what it is with our weather up here, but it certainly manages to be sub-standard a lot of the time. Yesterday it was pouring with rain for most of the day, and this was happening was while the beaches […]

Good Morning, . Life is indeed a funny thing. . We sometimes make bad choices about the things that we choose to do in our lives, and then we must choose how to deal with of them. . Most of us get to do these things in a quiet and everyday kind of way, but […]
