Apologies for not being around, my hard drive decided to die quite spectacularly (on my birthday, no less!) and so I’ve been internet-less for some time now. Now, however, I am one year older, I have imbibed a suitable amount of birthday cocktails, spent time with a lot of lovely people, and more importantly, have a new working laptop. Please catch me up on what’s been happening, Tumblr!
