Friday Links

Happy Friday!

It’s been quite a week, my head is quite full of new work things.

This week on the blog, there was a miscellany post a day later than usual, the usual allotment update and the usual goal recap and setting post.

She dealt with her lack of votes but tied her hands on anything to do with NI.
