Pip Lincolne from Meet Me at Mikes, is my internet crush and I always try to take part in her taking stock posts. I take the stock, write it down and then it is suddenly a month later and I have forgotten what it was I was stocking about. However this time Pip has presented me with a quiz and I do love a good quiz/questionnaire. Carrie, remember questionnaire Club?
You can read Pips here or read mine below, or have a go yourself if you like that sort of thing.
