I am a 40-something year old accountant, wifey, mum, adventurer and knit-nut. I consider myself to be super fun,a little bit crazy, and waaaaay outside the box.
I am turned on by uncertainty, individuality, colour, passion and rule-breaking.
My lovely mum taught me to knit when I was a very little girl, and I have managed to find some time to knit almost every day – my little sanity breaks.
I'm a native Londoner, but have spent the last 14 or so out years living in the Canadian Rockies, on a yacht circumnavigating the globe, in the British Virgin Islands heading up the Finance team for Sir Richard Branson and on the road for a year as a Tony Robbins’ Platinum Partner. I have a thing for adventure.
I'm now back "home" and setting the riveting world of accountancy aside for another soul-stretching adventure in my own little yarn shop, where I get to surround myself with a wonderful team, sell beautiful things to like-minded humans who appreciate the best of this world, and most importantly - be close to my amazing family!
Q. What would you name your boat, if you had one?
A. My catamaran was called Free Spirit. Sums me up. But if I had another it would be called Agador Spartacus. Because he's one of my fav characters from my fav movie, The Birdcage.
Q. If you had to flee the country, where would you choose to live?
A. Already lived in sooo many gorgeous places, but next on my list is Florionopolis, Brasil. I love Brasil! I'd take up capoeira again, and drink cachaça, and dance!
Q. How long would you last in a zombie apocalypse?
A. A very long time! I love a good battle! And I have a really tough stomach. I can eat anything - probably even zombies. I'd be done in by a really stupid, clumsy accident in the end. Like rusty-nail tetanus or something.
Q. If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?
A. Indecent exposure.
Q. If you could know the absolute and complete truth to one question, what would you ask?
A. How can I get Henry Cavill to adopt me?
Q. If you were given a one-minute ad slot during the Super Bowl that you couldn’t sell, what would you fill it with?
A. People crazy dancing like no one was watching with a back-track of me singing bad karaoke. Probably a Johnny Cash tune.
Q. What did you think was cool when you were young, that you no longer think is cool?
A. Stirrup bottomed ski pants!
Q. Which of your personality traits has been the most useful?
A. Being easily bored.
Q. If you had a theme song, what would it be?
A. Jump Around, House of Pain.
