Memory Lane Monday – Mum

One of driving forces behind this new blog is to create a vault of stories and memories for my girls to look back upon when they are older. Not just about me and our life, but also about the grandparents they’ll never know. So I thought I’d kick off a regular weekly post called Memory …
