What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group…
