Albus Silente

Albus Silente non sembrava rendersi conto di essere appena arrivato in una strada dove tutto, dal suo nome ai sui stivali, risultava sgradito - Albus Dumbledore didn't seem to realise that he had arrived in a street where everything about him, from his name to his boots, was unwelcome.

In the meantime here are some cute photos…

Firstly I recently came across the Girls Night In free newsletter available here. It is fantastic and contains loads of lovely ideas for a girly night in with…
