Then when I landed I forgot to post, and I still need to finish my monthly wrap up and challenge wrap up for November too! But I WILL get there!! Back in September the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s Novelties tagged me in the Waffle book tag, and I am so pleased because…

    Good morning bookworms! Quick life update: Remember how we moved house? Yeah, well I hurt my back lifting boxes, and then I ignored it, kind of hoping it would go away… A-HAHAHAHA. Life lesson for you all: Don’t do that. Because of my repeated ignoring, I managed to do more damage which has resulted in 3 sprained discs in my back, and really, just a lot of pain. Hence my sudden disappearance again!! But I’m on the mend again, so fingers crossed I can finally catch up and finish all…
