I’ve been seeing a few “Interview with” posts kicking about and I’ve gone ahead and conducted one.

So, apparently, the best “Interview with” posts feature bloggers’ most inspirational figures.

My mum is my most inspirational human. I love her and everyone who meets her does too. She’s adorable and my absolute world!
