The egg in my head

Brain update 4b – awaiting eggstraction

Just a quickie, I’m all checked in at my private suite (side room yay!) in Hotel de Walton. Had some slightly soggy fish and chips but wasn’t that hungry anyway. Dee, Ivy and Corinna have gone off to explore the airbnb flat down the road then they’ll be back for Ivy’s final feed before bed. […]
