There’s a lot going on at home just now so I shouldn’t be so quick to join up with every last little thing to be done. On the other hand I can already project forward to being completed and happy and … yes, but no. We will survive. Life goes on and then you find yourself living in a house where there’s an old beater bike in the back and …
