Mish Mesh Blog - The Get To Know Me Tag

I have wanted to do a get to know me post for while now. I enjoyed writing facts about me for my Versatile blogger post and I feel it is about time that you all get to know me a bit better.

I’ve got a list of questions from a good old google search and have chosen to answer the questions no one asks, so here goes!


Are you named after anyone?

No I don’t think so, although my dad actually chose my name, my mum wanted to name me Sarah and was set on it, until a bunch of flowers arrived for her, with a card that said ‘To Mummy, Love Helen’. So she had to call me Helen.

Really cried? I can’t really remember, it takes a lot to make me cry these days. I cry a few tears now and again, the most recent being yesterday morning, which was only a few tears.
