Fab!

Interesting, informative & fun

Like accidentally eavesdropping on a table next to you, buzzing with rural life and painting pictures in your mind.
Have only just began and I hope they drop the habit of constantly interrupting the answer to a question just asked, it’s a little irritating but I’m sticking with it.
