Back to school

Sponsored post We came back from our many staycations (of which more in future episodes) to a satisfyingly huge parcel. It turned out to be from those delightful people at Tesco! As you see from the pictures, a frenzy then ensued as we ripped open the brown paper, revealing a lovely big sturdy black box, […]
