A bit about me...

I am a wife, mum, daughter, sister and friend.  Family and friends are very important to me and are the core of my life.  We always have Sunday lunch all together, a great way to catch up around the dinner table.  I am very lucky to have a happy marriage and two wonderful children who are very close to each other and a home that I love.  My passion is travel, we go to Spain frequently to a place called Moraira which is my second home, it is our happy place, healing place, a place that we can catch our breathes before returning to the real world again.  We have also recently been bitten by the cruise bug so there are many adventures to be had!
