Visit to Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium

  Thought I would try to write something a little different today, I know I don’t normally write about the places I visit but the post about my trip to the Bronte Parsonage was fun to write, so I thought I could try to do it again today. Anyone that has met me probably knows... Continue Reading →
