Go and grab yourself a cup of tea (or something stronger if you’re reading this during / after suicide hour), the remainders of that pack of chocolate digestives and settle back for a wonder through the best of the blogs out there
In no particular order (because I’m afraid that I’ve compiled this in the teeny tiny gaps that Babygirl has let me have free) and without much in the way of frills or fanciness but hey, their wonder is undiminished and doesn’t need much introduction anyway, I give you this week’s wonderful bloggers and their super posts !
