Another Year – Finishing Nursery And Year One!

I love the changing of the seasons and living in Great Britain we do actually get to see them in full technicolour each year. As Autumn moves to winter and my black tights and boots make an appearance I enjoy the changes in both the fashion and the feel then mid way through I look forward to some spring light and eventually a leap into summer.

FFS Katy Perry!

Do you know what?

I also try very hard to just be a bit cool and not embarrass them in front of their friends – I […]
