Letterbox Love #5

Hey! It's half term so I've got a week off exams so I'm hoping to post a couple of times this week, but we'll see how that goes!

So, I was thinking that I don't just want to be really quiet until the end of June, and I'm not going to be revising 24/7 (and now that I'm on study leave I don't have school) so I should have some time to at least post something occasionally...
