26 fun things you should know about Mona (our stationery wizard)

Morning lovelies. It’s another day in lock down and I am trying to maintain some sort of work routine for a few hours each morning. I don’t know about you but I just can’t seem to focus on anything else but the C word. Earlier I walked across the road and walked around the Starbucks drive thru. I’m pretty sure the lady behind thought I was a little mad but at east I moved my legs and I got coffee. 😉 Anyway, today I’m sharing Mona’s answers to our silly questions. Happy reading everyone!
