A Postcard from London

As I’m writing, the typical London weather – cloudy, foggy, humid – is morphing into what looks like a sunny day with a sliver of blue sky between the clouds.

I’m not sure if anyone will read this, to be honest 😉 I neglected this blog for a long time. At the beginning of the new year, I really want to get back to it.
