I know, I know, it's been a month - almost to the day in fact, but I've been busy alright! Busy coming down and getting over the chaos and the drama that is the end of term for us - as usual there will now be a glut of posts coming your way (lucky you!), so I shall start with our amazing fashion show - amazing in the sense that there weren't many fashion designers this year, but by golly did they make up for it with spectacular choreography and collections, and also amazing as they only had 24 hours to get it all down - pros the lot of them and I am so, so proud of each and every one! This year the photos are courtesy of Niall Taylor - an adult photography student who braved an entire day with us- taking a day off work I might add too - I love the candid getting ready images in particular and think that he has a wonderful eye for a shot - cheers Niall! I would also like to say that without the support of the media boys and girls - Gemma and Joe in particular, the wonderful Nich and James - who always keep me smiling, I would never pull this off every year! So ta very much. X

Yeah Georgia - it's definitely short enough
