The ‘B’ Word

They think it’s all over – oh no it’s not, well not yet anyway. Don’t worry, this is not a rehashed blog from last summer about the World Cup. Instead, we’re talking about the dreaded ‘B’ word, a word so hideous, so ghastly and so totally terrifying that we dare not print it in full. […]

Light at the end of the tunnel

You would have to have been locked away in a dark room these past few weeks to avoid the inescapable conclusion that we appear to have weathered the storm and turned the corner.

Flaming June!

Welcome to flaming June, and I don’t mean that in a hot sense! To be fair, May actually hasn’t been too bad weather-wise, and we haven’t seen too many signs of our apparently impending and predicted dreadful summer, payback for our reasonably good summer last year, as if the winter wasn’t bad enough.
