Tummy aches and Christmas trees…

Again I’ve been severely lacking in the posting but I do have an excuse, I came down with some sort of stomach bug earlier in the week.  I’ve not been sick luckily but I’ve had an awful stomach ache and not been able to eat anything without feeling unwell.  This has unfortunately led to me canceling my… Read more »
