Monthly Wrap Up: January 2019

I know January wouldn’t rank as many people’s favourite month (it’s not mine) BUT I do like it for its power to focus my mind. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but it is nice to open that brand new diary and actively take stock; think about what I want to achieve / do […]
