The 73 Questions Challenge

The 73 Questions Challenge

I haven’t done a tag post in absolutely ages, and it’s been a while since I’ve answered a bunch of questions on here, so when Kate Hawkins tagged me in the 73 Questions Challenge I figured why not give it a go?  The aim of the game is to answer as many of the questions as you can, with the rules as follows…

  1. Mention the creator of the blogging challenge (The RAK’s Sphere) and Vogue for the idea.
  2. Thank the person who tagged you
  3. Answer any 73 questions you like. (It’s not necessary that you have to answer the same questions as me)
  4. Nominate others so that they have a chance to try this out
