Well hello there Spring … thanks for the sunshine. And a sunny hello to all of you! You might have noticed it’s been a bit quiet around LUPO lately. Between long work hours, studying, kids and fighting the dreaded lurgy we haven’t had much brain space for well, anything really. But never fear, we’re back and looking forward to lots of sunny days spent in the garden, catch-ups with friends and some fun events. And of course, lots of fun things happening on LUPO.
