It is now July, and midsummer was last month, so I am slightly late with my Once Upon a Time V round-up post. But things happened to get in the way of posting. Okay, one thing. The puppy. Time consuming she is, but I think I have somewhat of a schedule going on now and she is gradually learning her place. So I have time for the round-up post, you’ll be happy to hear :)
