August 2018 Empties


Here is a rather short empties this month. You may be wondering why it’s so short – and if your not I’m gonna tell you anyway. With moving my stuff around four times in the past 2 months some things were thrown away for convenience before I could right them down for this post. Oh the blogging shame!
