🎶 It’s a miracle, it’s a miracle...🎵 yes George, it is!! 🙌🏼 Look Jacq! Just came up in my photo memories that you, Sam and I were in Cambridge a year ago today!! So that means it’s Jacques first birthday and I have had a houseplant for a whole year!! I am officially an expert 🤓😉 (we’ll ignore the Poinsettia currently flinging it’s leaves on the floor on the other side of the room! 🙈🤣) aww...don’t they grow up so quick?! 😉 @awomanonabike @icedance #houseplant #itsamiracle #ihaventkilledi
