The boys are back in town…

So this weekend would be spent as a boys and girls weekends and for the first time Team GB would be split up not just for the day but for the whole weekend. The girls were off to Hampton Court for a craft fair to be hosted and attended by none other than Kirsty Allsop and the boys were heading to London to do boy stuff!
