I’ve only had this blog for a month now and a few people have said really lovely things about my blog, it really means a lot to me. Iv’e seen that some people in Australia have read my little blog about a coffee shop in Croydon and that’s just amazing, I know i’m new at this but just want to say I appreciate every follower, like, and comment.
So you can imagine how happy I was when I received a message today by LondonGirlLost2015 (Whos blog you should definitely check out) saying that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award.

Questions from LondonLostGirl2015:
My Questions Are:
If you could visit one place on Earth and nowhere else after, where would it be?
There are so many places, but it would have to be Australia, I had a pen pal when I was 8 who lived in Australia and I desperately wanted to go there, I still have a postcard from her with the Sydney opera house on the front. Although there are many other places I would like to go now it would be great to get there.
