She really was the most fabulous woman… Continue reading My perfect day out
We went out for a big walk yesterday (I'm loving my post-cesarean milestones!) and called into B&Q - Luke is customising my old shitty laptop case for me and we needed some spray paint. It's rude not to browse the awesome prints and canvases, even though we're running out of wall space, and I fell… Continue reading Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn print from B&Q
