Hi all, Well, it’s the first weekend of the challenge already! I’m quite enjoying it, though must admit with a busy weekend planned where I’m stuck working all day Saturday and then have a parental visit then perhaps it’s just as well there are no posts on a Sunday πŸ™‚ Anyway, my E is for …

Hi all, Well, it’s currently 1am here, have just got in from an epic gig from my absolute favourite band of all time – the Manic Street Preachers and oops, just remembered that I haven’t written anything for this challenge for D-day (perhaps slightly apt under the circumstances!) so this will be a rather short …
