November Wrap Up 2018

Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay in this wrap-up. I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that we’re in the last month of 2018. How has this year gone by so fast? I’ve only just gotten used to writing 2018!

Now, while I’m proud of myself for maintaining some sort of posting schedule I am going to apologise again for my lack of engagement in terms of blog-hopping and such. I will try my best to do more on that front when I get the chance to.

Anyway, here is a summary of what I got up to in November.
