An Apology

  • by

The greatest ever disappearing act is the one that occurs every day – to the 16 hours left after 8 hours sleep. The last few weeks have flashed by and we’re sorry we’ve not been diligent in posting to the blog. Work has been the main focus of our existence as we struggle to get… Read More »An Apology

I can’t believe a week has flashed by without a blog post. It‘s been an intense week for sure. I’ve been rising at about 3:00am to start work and apart from walks to the toilet block and the occasional drive to Melton for a break I’ve been working till 8 or 9 at night.
