You ever find it’s the most surprising life events have the most profound repercussions? It’s never the stuff you plan, the things you work for or meticulously plot in detail.

Fancy another mid-week chuckle? Let’s face it, you’re working from home. There’s nobody looking over your shoulder. And every single one of us needs cheering up.
Hullo again. You’ll know by now I like a wind up. And for no other reason than that, I’ve recently been writing letters to the government.
