RESULTS – Microcosms 40

RESULTS – Microcosms 36

Thank you to all who waited patiently for inspiration in order to post their entry in Microcosms 36.

Of course we don’t, but whenever the subject of talking about the weather comes up, I get to do my ‘never a dull moment’ joke. Hilarious! Peter Kay’s Nan in ‘Car…
