Meet Faye

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!

Faye's Favourites:

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Thai food - This should just be any food really. I love to eat!

  • 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 feel like I was born for safari. It's just the best feeling in the world to see animals in the wild.
