So last weekend I was unavoidably absent here, my apologies, I had a huge wedding to attend, one which I served as both best man and wedding planner, it took over 3 months of planning as it was designed around the royal wedding’s theme. In the end it was something really special.
Okay! Moving right along to why we are here – starting today,
