7 January 2018

So, imagine it’s about 2011 or 2012, following 7 years of enjoying sharing inane quizzes to your ‘Wall’, looking up and subsequently remembering why you left old schoolfriend (and partners) in the past, leaving a few daft comments and giggles whilst scrolling and shock-horror realising it’s now several hours later and you’ve spent your whole […]
