My wishes have been heard! The weather gods sent maybe not sun but at least warmer temperatures my way. Obviously just in time for the weekend so I was able to enjoy a great day shopping and eating out with my mum. I was quite successful in the shopping department, the food was delicious and after weeks of not meeting up mum-and-daughter time was a treat, too.
I don’t have any more words right now but I know the links are speaking for themselves so without further ado: enjoy!
