As I told you all last week, it’s all gone by so fast, but there’s a certain shared vibe that people

Deadline day fun

Posted on 16 November 2012 by Tomos

So after several weeks of fretting over the frightening date that was the 16th of November, the day came with surprisingly little amount of stress.
