Summer my sticky hoop! I’ve been rained on, sleeted on, SNOWED on even. All in the last 24 hours. And here’s me thinking it might be nice for the bank holiday to get out and enjoy the weather. I must admit I’ve only (just) cleaned Big Red after the soaking we got the other day, … More Summer luvin?
