SUNDAY FUNDAY: CULTURE & GIN

This weekend just gone was a fairly chilled affair, Saturday was visiting people and some gym work in the garden. On Sunday I had a little bit of a lie in, made some tasty cheesy scrambled eggs and then took Ruby the springerdoodle out for a walk with the other half in the local countryside;…

THE STONE ROSES; BUCKET HATS, LEMONS & GIN.
