What do you "do"? I'm currently Web Trading Analyst at Cath Kidston head office, where I've been for almost 3 years, however I'm currently working my notice and starting a job at British Airways next month, doing something similar.

What are your hobbies/interests? I used to a be a dancer and even worked as one at Disneyland Paris for a while, but it's just too expensive in London to join any good dance studios, so my main hobby now is planning holidays! We love America at the moment. I'm obsessed with Walt Disney World/Orlando so I'm currently planning to go back there next spring with DBF after an amazing visit last year, then after that hopefully it'll be a first time visit to the west coast (I'm sure I'll find time for Disneyland while we're there).

What do you wish you had more time for? Dancing, because I miss it, and baking.

Do you have a partner and/or kids? I live with my wonderful boyfriend, Ed, we've been together for just over 4 years and moved in together last October. No kids yet!

Do you have any pets? We have a kitten, Winnie (known as Winnipegs, Peglet, Pegglebury, Pegglesworth, Winston - anything but Winnie). For the first 3 months of owning her we thought she was a boy, so she started life as Admiral Winston von Fluffymittens. She's a Duchess these days!

What's your favourite colour? Rather predictably, pink, although I love mint green.

What's your favourite film? Toughie. I love Forrest Gump, Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, The Notebook, I Love You Man (don't know why but just find it hilarious), and most Disney/Pixar films!

What's your favourite song or band? When I was a teenager I had a carefully curated list of 'cool' bands I liked, but these days I don't care and tend to enjoy most things I hear. My degree is in music so I like to think I'm just appreciative of all music because of this, but I think it's just because I'm not particularly discerning! I love house, hip hop, indie, jazz, blues, pop, R'n'B, classical (particularly the romantic period and early 20th century), 70s club classics, 50s and 60s stuff. See?

What's your desktop wallpaper? Castaway Cay, Disney's private island in the Bahamas. We visited on our Disney Cruise last year and I can't wait to get back (can you tell I like Disney?)
Hello! Must have been asleep when this topic cropped up originally! Thought I'd have a bash at filling it in......

Where do you come from?
I spent my formative years in Hampshire

Where do you live now?
Pretty high up on the beautiful Blackdown Hills in Somerset

How old are you?
Age is just a number.....and that number is 51....for the next couple of months anyway!

What do you do?
Well, I don't really do very much...and certainly should do more. I volunteer in our local community shop (best fun ever!) and I have just stepped down after around 15 years as treasurer of my local WI. There is a part of me that would love to take up writing...but I am shocking at self-discipline! In a previous life (before children, that is!) I was a Personnel Officer

What are your hobbies/interests?
Spending quality time with friends, shopping, eating crunchy hazelnut torrone, attempting to hunt down crunchy hazelnut torrone on't'internet (near-impossible!), walking, theatre, baking, charity fundraising

What do you wish you had more time for?
Playing with my children, fun, friends, baking, tracking down crunchy Italian hazelnut torrone, eating same

Do you have a partner and/or kids?
One ex-husband, one current husband...and 3 children, 22, 21 & 10 years old. 21 year old is autistic.

Do you have any pets?
Well, I am not prone to rushing things....so have been considering getting a tiny tortoise for around the past year! We have built the house, bought the heat lamp and all the other things necessary - which nowadays is a whole load of things compared to the "olden days" when I was a gal! Only thing we haven't got yet is a cuttlefish for him/her to chew on.....and that is what is holding up proceedings. That & my terrible procrastination habit.......!
If I was ever to get a four-legged friend, it would almost certainly be a chihuahua! I had a devoted little boy called Micro for 16 years (he died in 1997) and he would be such a hard act to follow.....so I haven't considered it. Would quite like a couple of alpacas though, in the meantime.....


What's your favourite colour?
I have loved bright canary yellow all my life. Don't wear much of it though. Clothes-wise, I favour pinks and purples

What's your favourite film?
Bit of a sucker for Christmas movies, particularly It's a Wonderful Life! Love feel good films like Pretty Woman, Bridget Jones etc. Also, anything with Kevin Spacey in it.....

What's your favourite song or band?
Well now, I loved the 70's! Absolutely worshipped The Sweet. I tend to like songs with deep meanings, like Labi Siffre's Something Inside So Strong.
For a song with a great message on how to live life, I heartily recommend listening to the brilliant James Taylor sing "Shower the People" - soooo lovely!



What's your desktop wallpaper?
As if I get any choice in the matter.....with a ten year old in the house!! That and the fact that I would hardly know how to set up any meaningful wallpaper......as am a total technophobe!! Computers absolutely hate me.....!
