The usually long January seems to have passed in a flash, and Spring days will be on their way, once we’re over this snowy blip! Throughout, we continue to enjoy some of the lighter moments shared online, proving once again that we’re all in this together. Whether it’s baking, trying to get the kids outside for some fresh air or a momentary lapse in concentration leading to near-disaster, we can all relate to these moments.

We’ve also had the pleasure of highlighting two new books by members recently: Knife in the Fast Lane by Bill Ribbans and I’m Not Like Everybody Else by Steve Bollen. If you have a book coming out this year, please do let us know so that we can give it a mention.
