Bearded Ladies & The Circus of Life

Last weekend was so lovely and full of family and laughter. Whenever our family are together we have such a laugh. In my last blog I mentioned that we were having a family Zoom call for my son Trevor's birthday. We often have a theme for our family calls and this one was 'Beards' seeing …
