I don’t know about you, but night time bathroom visits are now the norm. OK, TMI? The very though of walking the length of the upstairs, past a couple of sleeping people, down spiral steps, walking the length of the downstairs, past another sleeping person and then ducking to go through the bathroom door… aContinue reading “The smallest, sweetest bathroom ever!”
So I thought for this blog I would upload photos. Photos taken from the same spot but a year, 6 months and 1 month ago. Are you ready? Let’s begin.
