I don't normally do monthly wrap up posts as, honestly, not enough happens in my life to warrant them. But August was a very busy month for me so here we are. We had three lots of visitors around this month. It's not so easy for family to visit anymore as we are a (rather… Continue reading August wrap up
It's officially been a whole year since we upped sticks and made the move from our house in East London to our ground floor flat in Guernsey (Okay, so it's actually been more like one year and four days but I've been ill).
