Florian and Mum were blessed to have their birthdays just before the Circuit Breaker (CB) measures were put in place so we managed to enjoy a celebration dining out.

Seeking the Rainbow has been taking up most of my time of late, but I realise how important as well it is to make time for family.

29 September 2019, Florian and I celebrated our first anniversary. It's been a whirlwind of a year as many of you may know. We had a whole lot of highs, and a huge hit-the-ground low.
