    It seems so recently that this whole thing started. A few months ago I was an unsure fresher, and now I’m well and truly swimming at the deep end! Christmas has come around so fast and with it so have...

  • Courir les magasins

    This means to go shopping, but not food shopping. I spent today doing the last of my Christmas shopping and trying to squeeze everything into my suitcase in a way that will keep bottles from breaking. I am going home...

  • S’en prendre à…
