I went on Twitter the other day to see that I’d been nominated to do the ’73 things’ tag by  a fellow blogger, Jessie Mills! I’ve wanted to do one of these type of posts for a while, so I was really excited to start once I’d been nominated. I’ve done a ‘get to know me’ themed post previously, but you can never know me too much!

Here is my version of the ’73 THINGS’ TAG
