fun facts

I’m a person who really enjoys a fun fact and have a habit of sending such facts randomly to friends – such as, did you know that the blob of toothpaste that sits on your brush is called a nurdle? Or, did you know that in 2014 there was a successful Tinder match in Antarctica? So from this came my inspiration for the following blog post
