Onward Into 2017
January 16th, 2017 by

…like a herd of geriatric turtles, as it happens. :) We were sidelined over the holidays by that horrible flu/chest infection thing that seemed to be sweeping the country, which put a damper on the holidays until well after New Years. Horrible stuff! I’ve very slowly been getting back into the swing of things with […]

Today on Facebook I saw a friend indicate interest in the Night Market in Nottingham.
