48 Questions

I read a great blog post this morning and liked it so much,
I’m copying it! Sharon (thanks for the idea btw) wrote that she got the idea
from Juli who got it from somebody else.

I have no idea who Juli is, but my thanks go to her, too 😉

So for once you will be reading just about me – hope you can
cope 🙂
