  1. Thank you for your nice comment on my blog! I don’t think I can take part because I follow so many great blogs I don’t want to single only 11 out, but I do appreciate your kind thought.

    There’s no such thing as unavoidable housework ;)

    1. I feel your pain, I read so many but ended up choosing the ones I relate to most.
      Haha I wish I could just avoid housework! Unfortunately, my nerves don’t hold up to mess and I have to clean to calm my brain :D

  2. Love the new layout – it didn’t show up on my mobile and thanks again for the mention, I will eventually get around to responding :)
