I can't wait to get to know you better, but in the meantime, here are some snippets of information to help you get to know me better!
My wonderful husband Matt - We met in 2008 at the Kayaking Club at Reading University - this is very out of character for me, as I am not sporty AT ALL!
I'm a Mummy - We had our beautiful girl, Amber in January 2021. Being a Mum is the best thing in the entire world!
Sooty and Snowball - My gorgeous cats, found on the streets of Shanghai as kittens. They make me laugh every day.
Travelling the world - I have lived and worked in Germany, China and Cyprus. My aim is to visit every country in the world - ambitious, but I've already made a good start.
Orchids - The most beautiful flower on the planet, and the only one I am able to keep alive for more than a week.
Crochet and cross stitch - In the evenings and at weekends, you'll find me on the sofa, doing some crafting. Friends are bombarded with hand made gifts.
Coconut flavour margaritas - This may sound vile, and it does in fact taste a little bit like toothpaste, yet, there's something about it that hits the spot on a Friday night.
Archaeology - My Undergraduate degree, and lifelong love. I have a particular soft spot for cave paintings and hand axes.
Adventure books - It's a close call between Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody Murder Mysteries and anything by Chris Kuzneski.
Wildlife Photography - I LOVE going on safari. It's just the best feeling in the world to see animals in the wild. Cheetahs are my favourite animal (it had to be a cat, right!?)
