Hello again!

Hello all!

It's been ages since my last post! I don't think I even realised how long...

I've been attempting a career change, so since January had been concentrating on studying for some project management exams, which pretty much wiped all of my creative energy!

Hopefully I'll be on here a little more often, but we'll see!!
