Happiness can sometimes come at a price.

I want to start this review by saying something positive, something that doesn’t happen too often in my writing, but I have been doing exceptionally well over the past week or so. I’ve been pretty happy and that’s mainly down to my amazing partner whom I love very much. I wanted to start with that as, I’m not sure in which direction this review will take yet as, for the past couple of hours I have been feeling rather low, not ... read more
