SCP #64: Ice-Cream Afternoon

If it weren't for the very public nature of this project I think I would have pulled the plug on it by now.  Or at least taken a break.  But I know from experience that if I take a break at something challenging it can be really difficult to start up again.  Especially now, when the rest of my life seems to be getting in the way, if I stopped now I'd probably never find the "right time" to start back up again.

For the sake of my sanity I'm going to scale back my blog posts a bit, at least until the Term 1 school holidays when I've got a bit of extra time to myself to hopefully catch up and reassess my work/life balance.  For those interested in the composition of this piece, it came from this mind map:
