• A moving story

    December 4, 2013

    So the really big news that I can actually now talk about is that today we have finally, finally, finally exchanged on our flat. In just under two weeks time – on my birthday, no less  – we’ll be moving down the hill and up the road to an actual house. Still in London, but…

  • Christmas for children at Kensington Palace
