|Photo of the month: pumpkin selfie|
At some point, I decided to choose this crying piggy bank as my monthly topper - probably because I spent a huge chunk of money on my new contact lenses, but it may also have been because the picture's really darned cute. I've decided to include it now, even though it doesn't summarize the month as well as I'd expected at one foggy moment in a long foggy month.
I'd say more about my month, but I'm a bit foggy. :) So I'll let the posts and pictures say the rest:
