The New Horizon

I am three days into my new career, having moved on from bathrooms and on to sofas. My first few days have seen me end up feeling sore all over, what with already helping with moving sofas around, whilst today I was on a delivery lorry, discovering first hand the consequences of problems created by… Read more
