The ‘S’ word… (Not yet, not yet, dammit!)

Another unplanned hiatus, I’m sorry, post-Anglia-Ruskin Summer School (utterly, utterly brilliant, inspiring and wonderful – of which more in my next post, I promise) as I work like a wild-haired, coffee- & ice-creams-on-sticks- (it is summer, after all…) fuelled, slightly … Continue reading

All that bounces is not necessarily Tigger-shaped…
