Happy Friday internet! How has everyone's week been? I took my very first trapeze class last Sunday and have been spending most of my evenings this week in bed feeling sorry for my sore limbs. However I've also developed a cold so my second trapeze class has been put off for a while. I'll instead be heading to Glasgow City Comic Con this weekend.
I've also given my Linkables a new format. It's been two years since my first Linkables post and I thought it was time to spruce it up a bit. So hello intro paragraph about my week and fancy new sections so you can quickly find the kind of links that interest you. I did have to debate which section to put some links in so remember to nosey through them all anyway.
