So we’re back in England now for a few weeks, it took about a week to settle and I had jet lag a few days after we arrived – bit annoying really! We’re settling back to “normal” life. In saying that, we’re currently staying with Simon’s mum until we find our feet – Simon is […]

I know I would have normally posted the tag post – it’ll be up later in the week and another beauty post – I’ll make up for it next week.  Thought it best to pop this up and wave!  We’re both OK, the whiplash has practically vanished and the aches are less achy!  We’re both […]
