Weekly Wrap Up (6th-12th of August 2018) ~ What A Wonderful Life!

Hello awesome nerds and happy Monday! From today till the end of this week I’m technically on holiday, as on Wednesday it’s a national holiday, pretty much every business is closed till the end of the week, and there’s not much to do at work, till the end of the month, due to the season….
