Boo Who?

  • Mood:
  • Music:


A year of future planning, a few parties, extra hours at work, telly watching, sweating in the gym, rabbit sitting, gigs,
going to Sweden, recovering from Sweden, a nice couple of long weekends home and away with and without family, a stag doo, beer, wedding plans, chilling, feeding, Crimbo and a wedding.
