Last week wasn’t kind to us. First, I caught tonsillitis then Mark started coughing, and we passed the infections to each other, leaving us both feeling incredibly miserable. This, of course, affected our work and the release schedule so we are now so far behind I am worried we may not achieve the April releaseContinue reading “To me to you and a bit of paranoia”

Spring Blight – snippet
