Janathon Bar Press Up

As I am a failure, when I went to the pub with Jog Blog on Thursday, she made me do a bar press up. Here it is: To make up for my Janathon fail, I have also been ordered to dressing down dash. I have four dressing gowns, so I shall let you vote: Lilac dressing gown with a sheep on it. This could be paired with sheep slippers Fleecey polka dot dressing gown Pale pink dressing gown with flowers Grey polka dot half dressing gown to be worn with hippo pyjamas.

My good intentions of Janathon

I had several good intentions for Janathon.

Cleaning Gift Vouchers Review

I have a few bones to pick about what I consider a pretty pathetic excuse for a fundraiser. Before I go on, let me just make a few things clear as I am well aware that this… View Post
