Meet My Fiancée…

This evening was much like any other. I sat yawning at the dining table as Mother and my perfect little sister, Libby, discussed the wedding. I stress that this is definitely the wedding, and not just a wedding. Oh no, Mother has gone out of her way to ensure that this is the social occasion... Continue Reading →
