    I am pretty easily pleased. I find it hard to paint a picture of me with these q&a type things. I love all things giraffes. If I had my way I would live in pyjamas and fluffy socks and drink coffee (or gin dependant on mood) all day every day whilst eating chocolate. But with a full face of make up, brows on point and perfectly manicured nails :haha:
