2023: Replenish

Happy 2023, everyone! At the start of every year, I try to choose a word that will be my theme for the next twelve months. This year’s word is REPLENISH.

Sunday Summary – 01 Sept 2019 – The Remainder of the Year

Here we are at the start of September and the year is 2/3 over. And with all the things I crammed  into the first 8 months of the year (a musical, a play, my final uni subject, and a trip to the USA), I feel like I’m only just reaching a point where I canContinue reading “Sunday Summary – 01 Sept 2019 – The Remainder of the Year”
