25 Things I've Learnt In 25 Years!

Friday 11 December 2015


As I turned 25 (I know...!) on Saturday, I thought I would do a round-up post of all the random, wise, profound & silly little things I've learnt about myself in the last quarter of a century.
That's disgusting, I can't believe I just wrote that...quarter of a century, ergh! It's definitely random and it probably would have been better to post it on my actual birthday, and not 6 days later, but here we are! Enjoy :)
