Back to the Maison de Stuff.
Basically these are any sets of pictures with Leon and/or Gav in, who I tend to think of as my Canterbury friends, despite having known Leon since I was about 15, and the fact that Gav now doesn't live in Canterbury. Anyway, together these pictures form a storyboard of a (still ongoing) saga of boozy shenannegans and generally rascally behaviour perpetrated by three drunken miscreants over the past few years.
