My life in less 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 have an amazing supportive partner and I’m 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 for a run or a pilates 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
  2. I just liking putting smiles on people’s faces – life is too short to be sad for too long
  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
