For those of you who are new around these parts, this is basically a feature I do every so often where I just give rambly life updates and whatnot – y’know, the kind of thing that covers a few topics that don’t need their own blog posts, but I want to have a ramble about them anyway.

As you might have guessed from the title, a few changes are being made around these parts. And so without further ado…

Let’s have a natter!
