20th to 26th: A Friday Feeling

Sticking to last weeks commitment, I'm going to be giving a run down of my week and the things that I'm grateful for along the way. On Friday I was grateful for the first (and potentially only, knowing our wacky weather right now) BBQ of the year. Bought a little portable BBQ, to save using …

Getting Worse to Get Better
