I am 36 years old

I am currently shattered after a busy weekend with the boys. How on earth do boys always have this constant energy, hunger and ability to talk constantly?

I am happiest when I am in the outdoors, the sun is bright, the sky is blue and everyone in my circle is happy and healthy

I am most relaxed when I am by the sea

I am most anxious when I am ill or people I love are ill

If I could change one thing in the world it would be that there would be no hate. Everyone would respect each other’s choices for how they want to live their lives and just let them be.

We only get one shot at this. What is the point in hate?

Bad health really freaks me out

Miranda really makes me laugh

When I feel stressed, I usually shut myself off from everybody at first and work out how I’m going to get out of the situation. This is probably the wrong move. I also have an armour of complementary therapies to get me back on track – massage, Acupuncture, essential oils and yoga – I swear by them all!

When I feel sad, I cry and don’t sleep and bottle things up for too long

My go-to dinner party recipe is always sweet potato and coconut curry with sticky rice, banana and pomegranate

The three people I couldn’t live without are Chris, Freddie, Rocco

The person I most admire is my mum…because she’s the glue that holds us all together. She’s the most kind, generous, loving and helpful human you will ever come across. Whenever I have bad news, good news, any news, my mum is the first person I call, and she always picks up (unless she’s at golf!). She always gives the very best advice and just the right amount. If I’m half the woman that my mum is when I am her age, then I will be extremely happy.

The one piece of life advice I would like to share is to be more understanding of others. Don’t always take people at face value – there may be other things going on at that particular moment in time that you don’t know about or that you don’t understand. My younger self would’ve often drawn immediate conclusions about people upon my first meeting with them, but I’ve learnt that most of the time, things are not what they seem. Try to get the best out of everyone you meet, and you will see amazing things in return.
