I was a tomboy too (like Lou) and as soon as I got home from school would run to my p.e. teachers house (lived on the same street) and get him to come and play football and cricket. 

I daydream a lot.

I had an epileptic fit the night before my gcse exams and lost my memory, therefore I couldn't take any exams. I still got given the grades though! 

I was a terrible student as I had left home by the time I studied at college. It was a catholic college and Sister Kate would come and knock on my door at 8am just to get me to my lessons. It didn't work. 

I met my husband when I was 18 but we didn't get together until I was 24. I wrote him a letter and hoped he still lived at the same address. Half an hour later, he called me and I knew 'that was it'. He said he knew I would come to my senses! Cheek. 

Not long after we started going out, we had our tarot cards read and the lady told us we would live abroad and have 4 children....4?

When Scott was proposing to me, I got the wrong end of the stick and thought he was dumping me. He couldn't finish what he was trying to say because I was hysterical!

I used to run and hide in my grandad's pub at dinnertime when I was at primary school and the dinner ladies would have to come and find me.

I worry far too much about what other people think.

And therefore, I bite my lips all the time.

I used to fall asleep everywhere. In nightclubs, on trains - missing my stop, in my english literature classes. I try and keep awake these days.

Questions from Lou
1. What is your favourite thing to eat for Breakfast?
    Butter croissants are a treat. 
2. What was your playground skill as a child?
    Leapfrog and hopscotch
3. The name of your first pet?
    Cindy the rabbit. I remember her because she ate all her babies!
4. If you were a tree, which tree would it be?
    A red cherry blossom
5. What is your life long dream?
    We are living our dream, but it is very hard work. I think we would like to be able to travel and live somewhere a little warmer! Oh and have a little apartment in a city somewhere too. 
6. If you could compete in the Olympics, what would be your sport?
    Definitely the 1500 metres. I was in the local running club and that was always my best run. I would love starting slow and     then take over everyone in the last 200 metres.
7. What is your biggest achievement to date?
    Having two children. I am so squeamish and was terrified about having Sam and to learn they didn't have gas and air in the French hospital. They had epidurals,which I was adamant I didn't want - I lasted to just 4 cm before shouting epidural s'il vous plait!
8. What is your favourite thing to do on a Saturday morning?
    To go to the market if we're organised and ready as it closes at midday.
9. How big are your feet?
   Size 7

11. If you could kiss anyone, who would it be?
  Well, if I wasn't married of course - Colin Firth springs to mind.
