47 Things About Me!

There seems to be a trend on some blogs that I have been reading of late, that are sharing ‘About Me’ posts, with the number being determined by how old you are……and as I am 47, that how many are going on the list!

The younger you are the easier it will be to complete your list……but I have 47 things to find….so here goes!
