What my loved ones think about me…

16 April 2013| ,

Becky is one of my favourite bloggers, and more specifically one of ym favourite mommy bloggers. 
She has two of the sweetest little cherubs that absolutely loves and adores.
Becky is also a nurse.
Mama by day and life-saving nurse by night. 
Anyone else thinking of Florence Nightingale or Mother Teresa right about now?!

She is also the brilliant master mind behind this exciting link up – “What my loved one says about me”
I decided to ask my favourite loved one – my hubs, MC but also a few loved ones around me.
Read and enjoy…
