  1. I want to put in a bay window in our main living room when we get around to replacing ours, but who knows! I'm super shy too - stops me from doing a lot but I learn to live with and around it.

    I love these posts, it's a great way to get to know people :)

    1. Definitely are. Thought it would be a great way to do a bit of an introductory to myself haha :)

  5. Love this post! We have so much in common. I think my anthem is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyaSQLlS5e8
    I always wanted to learn the violin buy my parents got me a clarinet instead... maybe because we lived in a small house haha! I don't think the noises I produced were much better.
    Do go travelling if you get the chance. It is one thing I regret. I wish I had gone with my friend from uni after we finished but I went home and got a job instead and life tends to take over after that. x

    1. Thank you! :D I'll have a listen to your anthem, I can imagine I'll love it haha. I don't think I was actually pushed into violin or anything. There was a violin teacher came into the school and you could 'audition' for it and I did cause I wanted to play. Looking back now if I had had the opportunity for playing guitar or piano I would have taken that instead.
      I'll definitely try to! :) x
