  1. Hi!

    I loved last years GVB, ’twas great fun. Sorry to ask…but is it too late to sign up? I’ve been away and haven’t been checking wordpress enough. Totally missed it.

    I don’t mind just tagging on to the last day – but I understand if it’s too late, I’ll just stow my idea ’til next year.
