November Favourites

November has been busy; well, it's certainly busy for me and my boring little life. At the beginning of the month I travelled back up north to spend a few days with my family, and celebrate my nephews fourth birthday. I can't believe he's four, he's growing up so fast. My blog has had a revamp, let me know what you think; I absolutely love it. AND, I got my powerchair!!! I'm not going to say too much as I have a whole post planned but I bloody love it.
