I’m back!

I’m back!

It’s been a long time since I’ve actually sat down in front of my laptop and bashed in some words for the blog. Nearly 6 months. The blog was scraping by with ill scheduled posts, and some forgotten ones never got posted. I must admit, it’s a mess....

But I've always wanted a Japanese knife, so my dear Wusthoff was officially retired today. She's a beauty, don't you think?
