1. What 5 words describe your life
Loved, complicated, funny, crazy, horny
2. What's something that people don't already know about you?
When I was a student, myself and a few friends were banned from our local Tesco superstore. My memory is a little fuzzy as a fuck ton of vodka had been consumed, but apparently between the nursing students and rugby team we were 'surfing' around the store in trolleys and singing rugby songs at the top of our voices.
3. How many 'real' friends do you have VS your likers/followers/FB friends?
With the amount of 'jobs' I had when younger and running my own business for 15yrs I know lots of people both on and offline. Over the years I have had friends who I have only known online and those friendships have been just as 'real' to me.
The last couple of years has unfortunately shown me that is true that hard times in your life will show you who your true friends are, I have had a number of friendships and that has left me feeling very cautious about who I trust and invite into my life.
I now feel that I have a small core group of friends who I can turn to at any time and trust implicitly.
4. What makes you feel vulnerable?
At present my health issues, not knowing what the root cause makes it very hard to plan. I feel like there is a major question mark over my future and so that leaves me feeling very unsettled and vulnerable.
5. Do you dare to dream or do you think dreams only come true for others?
I dream. I think too many people focus on dreaming big so I tend to talk about dreaming exquisitely. Knowing that dream as if it is a part of you, because it is, for when you dream exquisitely you can move past the size of the dream and focus on bringing joy into your life.
6. What one piece of advice would you give other women about life?
Be adaptable, the world never stands still and has an amazing talent for throwing a spanner in the works to fuck up plans. Being adaptable and having the ability to go with the flow means that when those spanners are flying through the air I can still keep moving forward.
7. When did you last shave your pits/legs?
About 5 minutes ago, I'm answering these while in the bath
