Another week has gone by and I am writing this while snuggled on the sofa in mine and Mr OneBigStressball’s new home!

I am mixed race. There. I said it. It’s usually a burning question people have when they first meet me, but they never know how to ask and it’s usually me who brings it up, easing their curiosity and leaving them with a sense of smugness that they knew I am mixed – bonus points…… Continue reading Working From Home – Week 13 Acknowledging my White Privilege
