Lilmissbelle- Giraffe Centre

Lilmissbelle- Beauty & The Beast 1

4.37pm I get back to my desk from the board room where we just had our weekly management conference call. Its timing is horrible as it’s obvious none of the participants, including those who set it up, are ever up for…

Lilmissbelle- 8-4-4
