Sixty Facts About Me

Sixty Facts About Me

I realise a lot of you who read this know me so probably know about 48 of these “facts” but forever in hope of new readers, I thought I’d do a little post about me. Random facts about me. Yeah I know I’m self-obsessed blah blah blah but it’s something I want to do and it was quite fun noting down all these things about myself which I sometimes I forget. Even if you don’t blog or care about writing things down, I still think it would be a fun list to have. Because you are you, and you are completely unique.
