I thought I would get you to know me better! Seeing I have been doing this blogging thing for the past 2 months we need to get a little more personable, don’t you think?

Things about me….

So this blog post is like I said all about me I thought seeing as I’ve done the 25 things about me tag which you can find below, and I recently shared with you my childhood story about dating in desperation. (Find out why I did it and what that means for me as an adult here) I decided that hey! that wasn’t enough. That I should share some random facts about me that the YouTube tag does not allow me to share with you.

I mean, we seem to be getting to know on another better but there are a few things you are yet to know about me some things I am gonna share here in this post

  • 1) My favourite colour is Green. Not any shade of green neon green like my headphones and wellies in this picture

but to be honest I tend to love anything bright, pink, yellow, orange, purple and red.
