October 2021 Wrap-Up

The end of October and to be honest most of November has completely escaped me. I was planning on posting my October Wrap-Up at the beginning of November. However, at the very end of October I went down with the worst head cold that eventually turned into a fall blown cold and whilst I was dealing with this we had a death in the family. So things have been pretty full-on. But I finally feel myself again and ready to start posting once again. Spoiler Alert: there will also be announcement happening on here on the 2nd December so stay tuned for that. Now back to today post without further ado here is my October Wrap-Up.
