The word “Artisan”, for me, it conjures up people who create unique and wonderful cherishables (I would like to be an Artisan). My own space. Lunch with family and close friends, especially if it loiters through the afternoon and lasts till evening. The first days of autumn. Books and learning stuff. Art and alternative medicine.

Littering, meanness, milk and having to stop to put petrol in my car. Rollercoasters and badly kept zoos. Oh, and one last thing, being called Liz (Elizabeth or Lisbeth will do)

If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
I’ve met the Dalai Lama, twice, but I didn’t have the chance to have a good old natter with him unfortunately. I wouldn’t mind having a coffee with Bette Midler either.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Not everything that happens has a reason but, in everything that happens, there is a lesson for us to learn and grow.

I was originally recruited on a temporary basis for 3 months and nearly a year on, I’m still here … not quite sure how that happened (but I’m very glad it did).

I team up with my colleague Heather in reception, so when you call us, there’s a 50/50 chance that it will be me you speak to first. I will make sure I put you through to the right person who will have all the answers and information you need.
