So with feet up and a cup of tea I thought I would take the time to answer...
What age were you when you were at your most happiest?
I think being in my thirties was a great age to be. I'm in my 50s now and although I don't like the physical ageing process (I'm vain I confess!) I care far less what people think of me and am much happier for it.
What is your most played song?
Thunder Road - beautiful lyrics, great melody, sung with such passion! His music has been the soundtrack to my life.
What is your most favourite food and least favourite food?
I love cheese. My Dad called me Mouse when I was a little girl I ate so much! I detest Brussel Sprouts - they are the devils business!
I joined a choir last year called Rock Choir www.rockchoir.com and discovered I could sing! I wish I had known this when I was younger as it's so much fun!
Favourite tv programme or film?
I love film so choosing just one is is impossible. I'm a big fan of films by the Coen Brothers. I also like old Hollywood films like Singing in the Rain and All About Eve
I'm nearing the end of my career as a manager in the NHS and I see 'retirement' as an opportunity to start a second career in something more creative. I love fashion, interiors, gardening and making things like soft furnishings and I'd like to start a small business that used my creative talents in some way.
I particularly love roses and peonies, white hydrangea, and of course lilac! The scent is so wonderful. I have a tree in my front garden. When it is (oh so briefly) in bloom I have seen people stop and positively swoon at the aroma!

OK so now you know a little bit more about me how about you?
Who has been the greatest influence in your life?
What is your favourite colour in the home?
Up with the lark or a night owl?
Cappuccino or a cup of tea?
