1. These testacles no longer belong to her to remove.
2. She's in ibiza with her mother so she aint gonna find out :D .
3. If she finds out - Fine I'll take the sofa's :lol:
4. Franks treats come in a small bag from tesco, not a large packet off me.

@ theboy,

Cheers, glad to hear the kestrel twins have a fan :wink:
