At the time of writing this, it’s Christmas Eve and I’m sat on the plane between Copenhagen and London. I’m leaving one home and am on my way to another, D’s and my London home. I’m also leaving 2015 behind and next time I return to my family and friends in Sweden, it’ll be 2016

For quite a while I’ve been wanting to refresh the theme of my site into something that was a bit more fit for purpose. After a few frustrations but even more ‘Aha’ moments and ‘Hooray’s, I’ve finally got something to share.
It’s a little more than a month since I last posted anything here and finished the day to day project. January has mostly been spent in the comfort of home working on the main product for byflock and it’s been absolutely wonderful.
