Listening to them reminds me of that time when he kept talking to me in this noisy…

At the beginning of the month I went on a girls trip to Prague (read all about what we got up to here) and then a couple of weeks ago I went on a mini break to Malta for 5 nights! I still need to do a blog post on that but I’ll include a couple of pics in this round up post too! So here’s what…
