Sorry, I’ve been such a neglectful bitch.
I guess it’s that thing where you get happy and busy in life and all the things you’d write about or whinge about don’t seem as important. Maybe?

There’s crazy weather outside. Like rain and winds. I live in a house on the top of a hill now and there’s so much more wind up here. The rain hits the windows of my studio, but when I look out at night I can see the lights of the city streaked with water and … Read the rest
I’ve lived on Askew Road for a little over 9 years. Until last week.
