(Almost) 100 truths // A blogger tag

I’ve not done one of these Q&A things for a while, in fact probably not since I filmed my 73 Questions last year. So when Sophie from Life As Mrs D was looking for people to pass on this tag to I thought it might be fun to have a go. The eagle-eyed among you may notice as you read through that a few of of the questions are missing – I’ve decided to surreptitiously skip a few of the racier questions, seeing as this is a family friendly blog….and my mum reads it!

So anyway, here we go – stick with me, I’ll try and keep it snappy…

One thought on “(Almost) 100 truths // A blogger tag

  1. I skipped the wild 20’s, my eldest was born a few months after I turned 21 ha! That feels like a very very long time ago now. Reading this made me laugh, as I realised that several of the answers are similar to security questions I have set up for various things and a few others are things I could never ever answer in case my Mum read them 😉

    Oh and good choice with David Attenborough I LOVE him!
