I cannot believe it is already November – this year has passed by so quickly and some amazing things have happened though I am sad to say that it took away my focus from my blog…
I cannot remember how often I have stood in my bathroom in the evening ready to remove my make-up just to find that I … AGAIN… had forgotten to buy more cotton pads!?
I write this in past tense, because I have replaced them with my own crocheted ones – YAY!!
