I DON’T DO LISTS…PT5

Ha ha…I don’t do lists except on here🤣🤣

OK, I do do lists but not in the sense I started this a coupe of years ago. I post things individually on twitter and Instagram to give the releases space in their own right but I suppose when I put them together in an overview here, they consist of a list 😂😂

…but there’s no preferences, order, rank and that’s what is important to me.

Right…now I’ve got that out of the way here’s the next collection and due to other comitments I am going to continue the icymi non lists for this month of January.

Which brings me to the important bit – Happy New Year and all the Best for 2022 and thanks for sticking around.

I DON’T DO LISTS BUT…PT4

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT 3
