Hi everyone πŸ‘
Just a small update....
So much has happened in the last 3 weeks,
I have been keeping the blog updated just not published them, as there is a huge gap of posts.
Good news and bad news I have had.
8th May is the 10th Anniversary of my mum passing away.
On a lighter note.
Got some Great vinyl albums from the local Charity Shop↓↓
Hopefully I will get three weeks blog posts published this week....
Fingers crossed 🀞
