To whom it may concern... My darling Jenna has been in touch, some of you may who I am talking about if you follow her blog. She called us to say she was absolutely shattered after travelling and had to spend most of her first week in bed - no swimming as hoped for. She … Continue reading A Message From Jenna
What's new for me? I am suddenly in the limelight it would seem.
