Guess who’s back?
A brief catch up on my year away from Lift Off It was the start of July and my destination was Adelaide in South Australia, where I had pure intentions of ‘seeing what happens’ with an undertone of ‘expecting to stay.’ It was a new chapter with my partner that started with an unexpected flashing
