A Note on Burning Bridges

Before I crack on with today’s update on Becky’s-crazy-life, I’d like to say that if anyone out there is wondering if they’re the only one’s social media stalking people from 2011 and from that summer where you went on loads of dates… you’re not. (If no-one is doing this and…
