Today is a pretty big deal in the U.K as we vote in our General Election. I am not a politics Guru, in fact my husband broke down the important manifestos for me and gave me great impartial insight on a lot of the issues that either directly affect me or I am passionate about… Continue reading Voting, Painting and a…Holiday?
