One morning – One box

I’ve broken a record today and managed to get through a whole box in one single morning!

Maybe next week I’ll find the time to share with you how I got through the box so quickly, but I’m afraid its a rather sad story. In the meantime, here is what the box contained (sorry about the typos, I’m in a bit of a rush!):
