Spinning Me Right 'Round:
  • Audio book - "Friend Request" by Laura Marshall. There was coughing on the audio, and the story took a little while to get there, but it was overall very good.

  • The Book Club I was a member of is sadly no longer running.
  • Mrs M's Curiosity Cabinet audio podcast. Episode 6 spoke about avoiding waste in making. Fantastic values/philosophies.

  • We're off to see my Aunty Fran's art exhibition (YarnderAunty).
