When I first started blogging in 2012 I felt a little lonely. So many fantastic blogs that I followed were written by people living in London; glamorous types drinking artisan flat whites with avocado on toast. It was hard watching them be able to visit lots of fantastic events whilst I had to turn down invites because they were always in (you guessed it) London, starting at 6pm sharp on a work night.

Instead I’ll shove it in my gob knowing there’s a 99% chance I’ll like it. In fact, I only recall one disastrous moment in my life with an offensively slimy mouthful of okra. *Shudder*
