I accidentally wore my knickers inside out on my wedding day!

I haven’t blogged at all this year. Naughty me. A slap on the wrist for moi. But I like to think that I have a pretty good excuse to explain my absence. And that’s the fact that I was busy planning the biggest event of my life. My wedding. After my lengthy hiatus, I’ve landed, successfully, […]
