It’s been over two years since I last published a blog. In that time, I’ve been busy renovating my house (an utterly horrendous experience) and puttering around on a number of other projects.

No, honestly. I have. Flat out. It’s actually quite weird that right now, when things are going to pieces all over the planet, I’m the busiest I’ve been in my nearly 15 years of freelancing.
