If you haven’t noticed, things have been a little slow around here due to IRL stuff. I went away at the beginning of July, then went to a music festival, and then I moved house. I also now work across two sites so my working week seems busier too. It’s all been fun though, well apart from moving house, but that at least has been successful!
Anyway, seeing as I failed to do a June round-up and July was so sparse, I’ll do a quick summary for both.
