Francesca Stone
I love singing along to songs I don't know the words to, making up dances in my kitchen and my other half's face when he catches me in the act. I like reading the paper on weekends whilst eating way too much mexican food. I'm scared of most things that pose a minor threat to mine, or anyone I'm close too's health and safety. And I drink far too many Bloody Mary's. oh yeah, and I blog and make some stuff.
