My Top Ten — Olivia Donnan

And the last top ten of the year goes to my gorgeous mum.   This is quite a list, the second one I have never heard before but I remember her going to Senegal during the university degree she decided to take at the age of 40, having missed out on going as a teenager.  #ProudDaughter
