50 THINGS: About Me

 I thought I'd do a different kind of post today, one where you can get to know me a bit more. Though I write about my life on here all the time I rarely talk about myself and thought it might be nice for you all to get to know me a bit better. So here's my 50 random facts...

2) I met my husband at university.
3) I appeared on the local news TV show when I was a baby.
4) When I was pregnant I became repulsed by avocados - if someone even said the word I'd retch!
5) I have one daughter called Isabella.
6) My husband was the first boyfriend I fell in love with and now we're married with our first child, which makes me so incredibly happy.

8) I went to Durham University.
9) Before my husband and I became a couple we lived together for a year at university.

19) I drink water like it's going out of fashion. 
20) I love everything Moroccan but have never been to Morocco.
