If you live in the UK at the moment firstly- hang in there. This current climate of buffoonery and Barnard Castle is our karma for Colonialism and Morrisey but it can’t last forever. Secondly, you’ll have seen our wise and just leaders are very concerned about the waist of the nation. We’re apparently all too […]Read More Boomboom’s Easy Guide To Diets
Life is weird at the moment, which I’m guessing as a human being you may have already worked out. Leaving the house is stressful. Working from the house is mind bendingly frustrating.
