I decided to throw caution to the wind and head down to the river instead of pumping iron at the gym. Turns out I made the wrong decision….well, two actually. The first was that I should have gone to the gym, the second was that I have a sneaky suspicion I left to early. To […]
I know that my wish list may not be popular with all however please remember this is only my opinion. I would like to hear what others think.
