So yesterday I bit the bullet! I travelled up to London for the day, by myself, to visit the Regent Street Boutique.
This may not seem like a big thing - And I kind of don't know why it is. In my younger years (!) I used to travel, including to London, to go to gigs quite regularly. I'd never even worry about accommodation for the night, trusting I'd meet fellow fans who would put me up on the sofa for an evening... Yet here I am, over ten years later, suffering anxiety ju
