    Nothing on instagram But I don’t give it much time and I’m not sure I see the point. Maybe it’s an age thing. It took many years on FB to get enquiries but it suits my needs and is used mainly as...

    Welcome back! I think with age comes confidence and not so much the niggling comments of tutors which inhibited you when you were younger or is that just me! It’s taken me a long time to feel happy...
