I love the christmas lights twinkling away in peoples gardens. Just generally the whole season makes me very happy.Continue reading Avoalre Outdoor Christmas Lights

His first toy as a baby was Gerry the Giraffe, Gerry was with in him hospital and has rarely left his side since, nursery, school, holidays, doctors appointments, haircuts, you name it Gerry has been by his side.
