If I return home with an extra 50lbs, I won’t be surprised. And I’m not talking souvenirs, because I don’t usually buy too many things while I’m travelling. The odd time I’ll pick up some artwork or a fridge magnet or possibly some coffee deliciousness (or maybe duty free), but it’s always limited in size […]Read more "Because Stuffed"
I’ve spent the better part of my day number crunching, drafting a report, thinking about a grant, and eating. Eating a lot it seems (well, a lot for me).
