Blogmas Day 22 (aka Day 25): Happy Christmas from London!

I’m not really sure what’s happened to my counting skills but I must have missed a day or two somewhere because I’m not yet at Blogmas Day 25 and I should be because if anyone is reading this, then, well today is Christmas day! So Merry Christmas one and all! I hope you all have the […]

Blogmas Day 21: Christmas Reads

The weekend consisted off lots of food – in fact […]
