Smile, it’s a belated funny Monday!

It’s a very busy week this week with the HOIME awards less than 3 days away so I haven’t been able to contribute as much to the blog as I would like

but, fear not, all will be back to normal soon. In the meantime, here are some amusing excerpts that should bring a  smile to your face. This is in lieu of the ‘funny Monday’  which I’m sure you all really missed this week!
