My life in less than 150 words….

I was born in Gloucester and ended up in Shropshire via Essex, London, Zurich, New York and a host of other countries!

I’m described as funny (ok, ok – sarcastic), warm, honest (brutally so sometimes) and go-getting. Certainly I’ve learnt that life is for living: it’s too short to have regrets or not do what you want to do. Carpe diem and all that jazz.

I’m truly blessed to be mum to three (yes, it’s ok to question my sanity at this point) beautiful boys who keep me on my toes 24/7!

If I ever get any free time I like the simple pleasures in life: exploring beautiful scenery, going to the cinema, going to a yoga class and most of all: indulging in my love of food and fine wine.

20 things you didn't know about me...
  1. I was on the box of the MB board game ‘Twister’ (let’s just say it was a long time ago *coughs 1989*)
  2. I love numbers & words – I can take a car licence plate and change it all into numerals and then words (!)
  3. I want to go on Countdown (no surprise given no.2 above)
  4. I can’t sing for toffee
  5. I love Gerberas
  6. I was born in 1974 and I’m a definite scorpio, sting in the tail 😉
  7. I’m not a fan of dogs (seeing a friends fingers being bitten off when I was 9 has that effect)
  8. I love Birds of Prey and Wild Animals
  9. I drive fast – only way to drive
  10. I’ve lived and worked in England, Switzerland, France,New York and Chicago
  1. Purple is my favourite colour

  3. I’m a reluctant runner (purely to try to keep up withmy boys)
  4. Watching people win races (athletics, bike, you name it) makes me cry – go figure
  5. I was a pretty mean rounders player back in my school days
  6. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my boys happy and laughing together – pure joy
  7. My first album I bought was by David Essex – I don’t think my taste has improved much
  8. When I’m not being entirely challenged and driven, I have a really bad lazy streak, drives me bonkers
  9. If I see a problem I have to try to fix it
  10. I set very high expectations of myself and those around me – it’s a double-edged sword
