Cadbury’s chocolate and getting lost in a book.

Hypocrites. (I can accept an opinion I don’t like, but I hate it when people claim to believe one thing and do another)

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
When changing jobs, there has to be a pull towards the new role as well as a push to get away from the old role!

I’ve worked in many different industries over the years, but people are basically the same and want to be treated fairly, communicated with appropriately, and paid on time! The best compliment I ever have at work is when people say they trust me to follow through and do what I say I will do.

With two daughters at University, there is a lot of motorway driving going on, but it is worth it to be part of their activities, mainly to do with drama productions.

I really should exercise more – my husband is too good a cook for me to stay slim – but somehow that always seems to remain on the “To do” list…
