Sunny Scotland

Where Did 2021 Go?

| 1st January 2022

The other day my niece’s little girl was telling me they’d been learning about the Iron Age and the Stone Age at school. She then proceeded to tell me that we are now living in the ‘Covid Age’, I guess when you’re 6 yrs old it’s all you’ve ever known. If you’re reading this, well […]
