Just a brief one this week. Will give an update of how the recording is going next week.
Apparently everything is moving on at pace, although the only current evidence are the pictures,showing that they are thoroughly enjoying playing in the snow!
Just take the opportunity for you to check your diaries, maps and bank accounts, to see where you like to be in this forthcoming (hopefully fantastically hot and sunny) spring and summer.
