Name: Lucy Dannan-Aspinall Age: Somewhere between getting pissed in a barn and organising appointments with a mortgage advisor. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Something mature, preferably gmail - will come back to this. Something unique about me that I think you won't have read before but you almost definitely will have. I work well within a team but also … Continue reading If my CV wasn’t so full of shit.
I literally (although, not really literally) cannot swing a cat at the moment without hitting a blog post about mindfulness, mental health or self love.
