So we all do this, go through life promising to be consistent with blogging and updating here daily or twice a week, and then something comes along and changes the mood; my mental health has been all over the place these past few weeks with the children going back to school and other things occurring that I do not wish to talk about publicly. So I decided to find this post that Jenny in Neverland did a while back and what better than to shake off some blogging blues with a little tag post!
… and I’ve see these interviews online, I promise I won’t be annoying walking around doing household jobs while I answer haha.
