  1. Great responses Rhiann 😊 I think I also need to add all the places you want to visit to my wish list! xx

  2. I’m glad you’ve done this tag too – it’s great to get to learn a little more about you “behind the illness”! I’ve never actually seen Arrow but someone else recommended it to me too, I think I may be missing out on something amazing… Oooh yes, chicken roast dinner definitely gets a thumbs up from me too – yum!! 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Yes, it’s a programme that I only started watching a few months back; binge-watching all five seasons and then recording the episodes from season 6 in order to catch-up and am enjoying rewatching the older episodes again too! Great programme to switch off from everything else!

  3. Norway looks beautiful, I’d love to visit and Italy too, I’ve always wanted to go there. This tag is great, I’ve really enjoyed reading your answers 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Norway is so beautiful, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! Yes, it’s a really fun tag, and really looks at your life beyond illness, reminding of everything you still have despite it! Hoping that you will be nominated at some point and get to enjoy reading your answers!

      All the best xxx
