    Hey Shelly! Loved reading your interview! My favourite ice cream is mint choc chip too and reading about your childhood brought back memories of mine! I had a treasured dolls house too and used to play teacher, nurse and mum! Those were the days although I still like playing...with beads and wool and fabrics :-) xxx
