Wednesday Weekly #30

Apologies for skipping a Wednesday last week, I was sick with a cold and had to choose between finishing my Almada Robe so I could lounge around in it, or typing up the Wednesday Weekly. We all know what won that battle.  As a result, I have an extra jam-packed WW for you all, hope you enjoy!
