The ‘Doctor Foster Went to Gloucester’ Effect!

Hey Folks…. ….and a good morning to you. . Yesterday was quite a busy one for a change. We went to hospital in the morning and then had a look around the shops but I soon got bored with it. I am looking to buy a shiny black down-filled jacket/coat, now that I have been […]
