It’s been a while since my last post. It’s a very bad habit I have, of starting things with a giant rush of enthusiasm and prioritising, then life soon gets in the way and before I know it it’s been weeks and months of ‘I really must get back to writing/podcasts on ancient history/course on… Continue reading It’s been a while…
