Karen’s Tarot Diaries 13/06/17

From 3 years ago today… An unexpected jaunt to Bristol today to read tarot at a staff awards evening. Little bit puzzled as to why none of the staff could shuffle cards… only to find out that they have machines to do these things now… Though instantly bonded and made a friend for life with […]
