So here we are with the next blog update. Is scary to think it has already been a month since our last big update (apologies not done one sooner, we will be doing these more regularly in the future). Time really does fly, especially with everything we are trying to cram into the days at the moment. Work has been pretty full on for the both of us and trying to squeeze in training/responding to potential sponsors/updating the website etc.. has been difficult, but we continue to
