It was my birthday at the beginning of the month and I’ve seen posts like this before, but instead they’re ‘24 things I’ve learnt in 24 years’. I’ve made mine a little bit different, because it’s been the hardest year for me so far and that really is common knowledge.

I quickly logged onto my account (which you should definitely set up beforehand as it saves so much time) and popped it in my bag. There was an online queue for about 5 minutes and then it sent me to the payment page. I couldn’t believe it!
