Old Wounds

As a person who worries way too much about what other people think of me, I often agree to things I don’t want to do. Nothing crazy, just meetings that don’t really hold any value for either party involved, that are arranged just to tick a box. An obligation box if you will. That might […]

The Witch (Film) Review

Or: Stone the Crows! This week features a film we’ve both already seen but I feel like we come back to it a lot, much like The Babadook in discussion and certainly in comparison to other movies. Since it’s free for all month and there’s no way I could complete with last week’s joyful pick, […]

Overdue Catch Up & Weekly Digest

I thought I’d do a general catch up and a Weekly Digest in one today because it’s been a while. Lucky you, eh? The last few weeks have been pretty busy catching up and actually socialising in the sunshine for a change, something I am resolutely against (kind of). I’ve been blessed with the people […]
