Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018

I really enjoyed reading this, it brought to life a typical suprmarket shift complete with misery and the type of characters which seem to crop up in most workplaces. It recall my own stint in 'provisions', I got a verbal warning for failing to...

Oh wow, it looks more like Campanula, Campanula poscharsykana maybe, nevertheless, what a spectacle! It really did look spectacular, never seen it growing so high up a building and the fact that it's a church made it all the more magical. I...

Posted on Tue, 14 Feb 2023

Posted on Mon, 09 May 2022
