Why it’s ok to have some alone time

So this weekend I was SUPPOSED to be doing another Spartan race up in Manchester, but instead I spent it buying video games and the most fabulous hat I have ever seen. Sat on my own in an empty house a part of me is regretting not going to Manchester, I feel like I should […]
