1. What 5 words describe your life?
Chaotic, random, hilarious, happy, full.
2. What's something that people won't already know about you?
I volunteered for a Rape Crisis helpline for two years. I stopped shortly after Jude was born as I was struggling to manage my time, but it’s something I would really like to go back to. The calls I took during that time have had a profound impact on my life.
3. How many 'real' friends do you have VS your likers/followers/FB friends?
I’d say I have a fairly decent amount of friends in real life, though there are probably only 4 or 5 I speak to all the time. I’ve just checked my personal Facebook profile and I am ‘friends’ with 335 people. I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t stop and talk to some of these people if I saw them in Tesco, but I must have felt like I knew them at some point … (probably Year 10 science).
4. What makes you feel vulnerable?
Being asked what makes me feel vulnerable ;-) Seriously though, good question. I think I feel my most vulnerable when socialising with people who, for whatever reason, I have decided are ‘better than me.’ This actually happens a lot. I’m blaming social media.
5. Do you dare to dream or do you think dreams only come true for others?
I absolutely do dare to dream, though I am a strong believer in working hard and trying to take steps, however small, to help myself when it comes to realising those dreams. Some daydreams of mine will probably never be realised but there are lots of other things I think could happen, if I put the hard yards in.
6. What one piece of advice would you give other women about life?
Don’t be afraid to do things differently - those who follow the crowd often get lost in it.
7. When did you last shave your pits/legs?
Armpits – this morning. Legs – last week, I think! (We don’t have a bath and with a 7-month-baby-bump I’m struggling to get the right angle in the shower! See also: bikini line.)
