A morning in the life

I should be studying right now. Let me fill you in: I am on the train. It is reasonably early. It feels much earlier due to the significant lack of sleep on my part. Nevertheless, I got on the train happily and took out my mound of notes, ready to settle into some productive learnin’ … Continue reading

Ode to Cuteness (and Name suggestions?)

So I was dutifully completing a project for Colaiste when my phone began to ring.  It was farmer Richie, who informed me of 2 additions to the farm. Lambs! 2 lambs! So at a pace approaching the speed of sound, I was up and grabbing the nearest camera and hopping about whilst simultaneously trying to … Continue reading
