Heeeeeeeey there Kat & Mitch😀

What a lovely, lovely surprise to find you here 😊 

What would I have done without your help??? 

I now realise I NEED to start clubbing again to get my feet strong enough 👟👟💪🏽👊🏾 to be able to get those ridiculously tight “pins” off the wheel 🔩🔨💥

Eurydice thanks you so much for the cuddles and will surely keep you amused until we get back to the UK 🐮

Hope you have a wonderful time in Portugal, stay happy and well, big kiss flying your way and woof woofs from Eureka 😘🐶🐾❤️

She is SUCH a happy girl! I think that video of her dancing in the garage is possibly my favourite EVER. It is IMPOSSIBLE to watch without grinning from ear to ear. Lovely to see her with your daughter too. And in the sea… it’s all just so full of joy. Wonderful!

Love to you all! heartheartheart
