4. I'm spend most of my life in bed battling chronic fatigue syndrome (and determined to win)
5. I’m a bit of a plane geek and love airshows (even before I met my boyfriend who is a pilot)
When is your birthday?
What is your favourite colour?
What is your favourite memory?
Ooh this is a tough one. I guess the one that always pops into my mind is Saturday 14 May 1988, when I was 16. If anyone were to ask me what year I would go back and re-live, 1988 would be the year for me. A number of things happened that year including discovering clubbing, leaving school, a summer of total fun and having my first true love.
Describe a day in your life……
I’m currently off work sick as I have had a few months of poor health. Turns out I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so life is pretty boring a monotonous!
Name five of your favourite songs…
Another really tough one (and will show my poor and old musical taste)..
The Eagles – Hotel California
Thin Lizzy – The Boys are Back in Town
Adele – Make You Feel My Love
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Crispy chilli beef
Summer or winter?
Hmm my actual favourite is spring, when the world and everything in it starts to come back to life and brighten up.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
Ballydesmond, a village right on the border of Cork and Kerry in Ireland. My Mum and her family are from there and we spent every summer there as kids. I just love it. It is small and sleepy, with 3 pubs and 1 shop. It is usually wet, but it has character and I feel totally relaxed and myself there. The people are so friendly and everyone knows eachother, a real sense of community and belonging. There are long walks to lose yourself from the world but only a car journey from a town if you want more hustle and bustle. I would move there in a heartbeat.
Name five of your favourite films?
Back to the Future
If you won the lottery what would you buy?
A gorgeous house with a pool, cinema and library. A luxury car (even though I cant drive). If I won enough how about a private island just like the Maldives. I have never been but it looks amazing.
Favourite day of the week…
Saturday. Its football day, and when I am working it is the start of the weekend. A lie in, some brekkie and then off to the game, or tuning into Soccer Saturday with the legendary Jeff Stelling.
What three things would you take to a desert island?
Sweet or savoury?
Oh sweet every day of the week!
Early bird or a night owl?
A night owl. My natural body clock is to sleep from about 3am – 11 so I could pretty much live without mornings. Late at night is when I can study best and concentrate on reading more.
Name five of your favourite books:
Carmel Harrington – Beyond Grace’s Rainbow
Jojo Moyes – Me Before You
Kathryn Stockett - The Help
Khaled Hosseini – A Thousand Splendid Suns
Lindsey Kelk – I Heart New York
