Weekend Wrap Up

My Brilliant Friend Season 2



Well, we all made it through the week.

This was one of the most stressful weeks I’ve experienced in quite a while.

How are you guys coping?

I hope you’re all hanging in there, keeping busy, and not stressing too hard.

Whatever that means?

I mentioned this on my Instagram stories, but it’s worth saying again…I hope you’ll come to see to my blog as a happy distraction during these turbulent times. 

While I never want to come across as “tone deaf” – I certainly don’t see my role here as anything other than light entertainment.

So, with all this in mind, here’s this week’s round up of links …
