Waking up after a mini-sleep :)

After being told that I was being made redundant from my previous employer in May 2017, I decided that I needed a nice long break from most things.

Blwyddwyn Newydd Dda! (Happy New Year)

As this is the last post on this blog for 2015, I’ll make it a short one. Although some of you around the world have already ‘seen it in’, I’ve still got 7.5 hours left before I can raise a glass and say Happy New Year! I’m taking a short break from my Word Toolbox. […]
