#BEDM – My Intro

Innocent Charms Chats #BEDM

Last year I tried giving Blog Everyday In May a go and was not hugely successful, but I am not going to stress over that, instead the lovely Elizabeth of Rosalilium has decided to host again for the 3rd year.

I could try to go into explaining, but honestly you would be quicker heading here, if you are a blogger though it would definitely be something fun to be part of. I wont be sticking to everyday prompts but that is the joy of it, they are there if I need to feel inspired which let’s be honest we all do from time to time.

So prompt one – Introduce Yourself

  • Ashleigh

    Hey! I’m in Kent too! I’m in Margate – but only have the two children and one of those isn’t yet born! I ALSO shaved my head for charity – back in November now so it’s growing well and I also love it, couldn’t imagine having long hair now! Definite fellow stationery addict AND I used to have my own business, a toy shop, but unfortunately I had to step away from it when my husband and I separated. Some of my closest friends I too met online – and I met my boyfriend via Instagram! I’ll have a gin if I’m going to have any alcoholic drink and NOTHING beats making other people smile – we have loads in common! I look forward to reading your future BEDM posts!

    Look forward to reading more!
