NaBloPoMo – Day 30 – Sunset

Since I started working from home, which I believe was 18,000 months ago, I’ve tried to enjoy a walk after work to mark the distinction between my day job work and my evening (which may or may not involve working on my various other jobs), as well as to get some steps in so that […]? →Read more

NaBloPoMo – Day 29 – My First Book Review

I just got the official word yesterday that my first ever book review has been accepted for publication in a journal! Woohoo!
