It has been a while since our last post so I, Rhodri Emlyn Lewis, thought I’d give this whole “writing a blog” thing a go. How difficult could it be??
This year I have been fortunate enough to spend 10 weeks in the UK working on a project with my family. Theresa, however, stayed in the 'Gong for the most part to hold down the RVR fort. I'm happy to report that Theresa didn't manage to destroy or burn anything down without her trusted Leader and Manager around to supervise.

We’ve been toying with the idea of adding a blog to our site for a while now and today we decided “why the hell not?”
