Ramblings, restaurants, Review

I’ve finally started my Christmas shopping. It was a stressful 90 minutes spent trying not to lose my rag behind slow walkers in town, and frankly I’ll be doing the rest of my shopping online now.

I’m a proud member of the #BrumBloggers clan and loved the little pre-Christmas meet up we had last week.
