Our Thursday Photo #87

This week I’ve been attempting to follow a bit more of a schedule in terms of fitting in work, blogging and managing my palm oil free website. I have to admit it hasn’t been going quite to plan, but that’s predominantly because everything has conspired against me. I’m hoping this won’t always be the case.

Our Thursday Photo #86

This year, I didn’t manage to take any time off work either so busy doesn’t even begin to cover it. And I suppose, being New Year’s Eve it is customary to take a look back at the past year. Well I can confirm that 2015 hasn’t been my favourite year. I have lots of goals and aims for next year, none of them are exciting or paricularly ambitious but here they are nonetheless. Get to…
