Hello again! I know this isn't what I usually do, and I might do another 'proper' blog on this topic in the future.

I am a Christian and I know that while I have an earthly father, I also have a heavenly one and He loves me beyond what I can imagine. I’m blessed with some of the best friends this planet has to offer and I love them so dearly! I love musical theatre, Harry Potter and swimming. I am rarely seen not listening to music unless I’m at work, much to the chagrin of those around me and even though I have no skill, I love to make those around me laugh with my terrible dancing!
