Busy Busy Busy!

Hey guys! So sorry I haven't posted for a while - I've been so busy with Engineering coursework and packing, I haven't had a chance to write about anything!

"Packing?" you ask? I'm off to South Africa tomorrow, for a month! I can't tell you how excited I am; the last time I went on holiday was 15 years ago when I was 3, so this is a dream come true.

I'll speak to you guys soon! Keep smiling!

    1. Thank you! So far it's been fabulous! I've been so busy, and it's great to see my family and know that tomorrow will be my first birthday will all of us together.

    1. Thank you! And yes, inspiration has been following me around a lot. Luckily I have my little notepad with me at all times to write in!
