I've been thinking @spin cycle... Perhaps the answer to all your troubles is on a Friday night bunaha for tea, a splash of old spice and a big fat exotic rollie afterwards........that's bound to put you right for the week ahead.......maybe another fat one Wednesday to see you through to the weekend again!!!🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
Not only that but it’s homeopathic and natural, you could argue that it is healthy πŸ˜‚
