That was the month that was.

Save yourself a minute and skip this blog.
Because frankly, I can’t think of anything to write. I cycled to work. I cycled home. I went for a short run, listening to audiofuel. My sample of orbana arrived, but I haven’t tried it yet so can’t tell you … Continue reading
Madness, efficiency or sloth?
As I was sitting on the sofa, watching Wimbledon and listening to the rain hammer on the window, I had a blinding flash of inspiration. This would be a perfect time to wash the car. A sponge, some soap and it … Continue reading
