20 Facts About Me

Hey guys!

In case you weren’t already aware, on July 3rd I hit 700 subscribers on my blog, and I wrote a post about it which you can read here. I said I wanted to do something to celebrate that achievement, but at the time I didn’t have many ideas. But today I was thinking, and I thought, I have 700 subscribers, many of which have only started following me recently. How much do they really know about me? So, I decided to write a post with some facts about me, so all of you newbies can get to know me a bit better!

  1. This blog is six years old, and has gone through three name changes.
  2. I am half South African.
  3. I have lived in the UK for all of my life, but I was born in Johannesburg.
  4. Swimming is, and always has been, my favourite sport.
  5. I was part of my swimming club for eight years until last September when I left for university.

  9. All of my cousins live in South Africa.
  10. I still don’t really know what I want to do when I grow up.
