50 Random Facts About Me


The wonderful Emma recently tagged me on Instagram to do a ’20 Facts About Me Post’. Until then I hadn’t even thought about doing one. But the more I did, the more I realised that I wanted to post that here rather than on my Instagram.

And instead of 20, I decided to give myself the actually challenge of finding 50 facts about me which you all may not know. If nothing else you will all get to know me a little better than someone who likes to run and eat and read! If you want you can also leave some facts about yourself in the comments. I really want to build a relationship with my readers and that includes getting to know each other, right!?
