The Best Friend Challenge, Hello 2017!

This is what Kirsty said in the draft so we shall keep that here:
“blah blah lorna write some words here please since this is ur idea x”

To say farewell to 2016 and hello to 2017, we bring you the”blah blah Hogmanay end of year challenge” (this was the title of the draft Kirsty left for me – thanks for exposing me Lorna, oh my gosh) or more commonly known as the best friend challenge. This year we celebrated the beginning of our joint blog Talk Less Mean More where we bring you our thoughts and opinions on whatever we happen to be writing about at the time. As Kirsty and I have known each other for far too long we decided to test how well we knew each other by answering a set of questions. Hopefully after reading each others answers we will see that we have spent far too long in each others company and know everything about each other (hopefully is a key word here).
