    This last month or so has flown and I can’t believe that it’s already 2017 and time to fill out Jamie’s (from The Perpetual Page Turner) End of Year Book Survey!  I actually wasn’t sure whether my brain was going to…

    30

    WE MOVED (but don’t have the internet yet…)

    If you’ve happened across any of my ramblings this year, you might have noticed that I’ve been on-again-off-again moving since about January.  There was a disaster with a new build/part-exchange valuation way back at the beginning of the year, which didn’t last very long and…
