What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to own/set up a winter wonderland or santas grotto.

What’s something interesting that your customers wouldn’t know about you? I’m not overly interesting but I played womens football for nearly 20 years and at college I trained as a chef so my background is really different.

What’s a goal for your business / life in 5 years time? To be able to take a wage and make enough to spend more time with my boys. Business wise I would love to produce garments from only recycled/sustainable fabrics and fibres and sell products from projects that help communities from around the world.

What’s your favourite piece of clothing you own / owned? A silk beaded dress I bought in Bali. Its one of those special pieces I fell in love with and I think I will own for my whole life.

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue? SO many but I would probably say ski-ing

What job would you be terrible at? Accountant

What skill would you like to master? Pottery/Seamstress

What are some small things that guarantee to make your day better? Coffee/tea, cake, candles, small treats from small business’s

What fad or trend do you hope comes back? Not really a trend but I love 80s and 90s music

What city would you most like to live in? Bangkok. We spent 4 months in Asia earlier this year and used Bangkok as a base. I would move there tomorrow but my husband isn’t keen on moving.

What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you? I think having 2 healthy babies has to be up there!

What is your weakness? I am the scattiest person ever!

What are you looking forward to in the coming months? Christmas!! I’m a Christmas fiend

What do you wish you knew more about? Everything! I love learning and spend too much time on wiki…...I guess mainly I wish I could master more skills.

If you could convince everyone in the world to do one thing at one point in time, what would that thing be? Again too many things…..To take care of our own, if every person helped one other in need we would be in a much better position.

What’s something you are self-conscious about? It’s not something I think about too much but my ability to adult is fairly questionable and I worry about the impact this has on the boys.

What was the most memorable gift you’ve received? My 3 legged rabbit when I was 7. I literally thought I’d been chosen to look after him by santa…..haha.
