May & June 2015 Recap


I know it's been very quiet around here lately, we had some bad news as a family at the beginning of June and I've just not been in the mood to spend much time online. I have been doing plenty of reading though so if I can get my brain in gear to start writing reviews then I will have loads of posts coming soon for you all.

I have a couple of reviews lined up over the next week & I'm going to try and keep the momentum going and get back to normal throughout July. I think this is the first time since I started blogging in January 2010 that I've taken more than a week off & I have missed it so it's good to be back :o)
