I have a secret to tell you! I’ve snuck off for a few days away with Mr Polka so I’m writing this on Wednesday! The patterned people are still working hard behind the scenes though (which I love them for) so I’ve been able to sneak away and enjoy some sunshine for the first time in a very long time! What did you get up to this week?
Around the wedding world this week…
