FRIDAY I’M IN LOVE #1 // NEW BOOTS, MARILLION & UNICORN CUPCAKES

I’ve decided to keep an informal record of what we’ve been up to every week and my ‘little loves’ so I’ll try and get a post like this up on a Friday — regardless of whether it’s just a few sentences or if I’ve got more to share with you! And so here we go… I’ve had a really busy week…

I WAS TAUGHT TO PUT LOVE FIRST, SO I DID

My Mum always says that I first announced I’d be going to university when I was 3.

IT’S A KIND OF MAGIC // MY FAVOURITE MAGIC TRICKS

Is it just me or did everyone have that special Grandad or Uncle (or both) who produced pennies from behind your ears and baffled you with their own little magic shows?
