Gettin’ Husky

It was a short but very busy week at real life work and SL was no different. I am focused on getting the Calendar posts done and hitting any blogging deadlines I have. Someone asked me what I would do with the time I gain from not doing the calendars again once they are completed [...]

Where Are We Travelling To?

Where Are We Travelling To?

I had toyed with the idea of booking a late summer cruise a few months ago...I don't think I'll ever go on a cruise now...It's well and truly scrubbed [...]
