I was inspired by this adorable lady and her cute lifestyle blog Pourable Sunshine. Cara and I are good friends outside of Blogging and although we keep in touch and she has rang me out of the blue on some occasions we have never actually met. We tried to meet up in London when I was invited to dance at Mind,Body,Spirit but I was so exhausted and overwhelmed by London (to be perfectly honest London terrifies me) and I was poorly, I couldn’t meet her in the end. I am sure one day we will meet, patience is a virtue. We have a lot in common based on her “50 Facts About Me” for example, sunflowers are also my favourite flower and I also sing (badly) to Disney songs. I am not afraid of birds (although my mum is) I have a silly fear of moths and other flying insects, they really freak me out. I am appalling at maths also and I used to suck my thumb until I was 13.
So on that Note here is my 50 Facts About Me.
1: One of my favourite snacks are green olives.
