I am a twin mummy. My gran was a twin. My great-gran was a twin. I guess I should have worked out that I may have twins. I didn’t. It was a complete shock.
The second house I lived in was haunted. I saw a little girl, dressed in Victorian clothes, standing in my room one night. I also felt her presence all the time while I was growing up.
I have had PTSD twice. Both for very different reasons. Both times speaking to a counsellor helped immensely
I have suffered from panic attacks. This stems back many years due to a significant event that happened in my life. I have tried to deal with this as best I can. Counselling has helped. I am lucky to have not had one for a long time but I always worry they will come back. I was terrified that I would have one when I was in labour with my boys. Thankfully, that didn’t happen.
I changed career after I had my boys. I went from working as a manager in Financial Services, to a Reporter and Editor for a local newspaper. A bit of a leap but the best thing I ever did! I can finally be one of those annoying people that say they love their job!
My brother-in-law and sister-in-law sold their house to make a film! Ok, I realise this isn’t about me directly but I am riding on their coat tails. I am incredibly proud of them. They are an amazing couple and I am so lucky to have them in my life.
I have been with my husband for 17 years this year. We got together when I was 19. So I am almost at the point when I have been with him for half my life. Scary!
I survived HELLP syndrome after I gave birth to my boys. After years of ignoring it and never talking about it at all, I went to the other extreme and started to blog about it. It has been the best thing I have ever done.
I am an Open Water qualified scuba diver. On the first dive after I qualified, I swam with three whale sharks. It took my instructor 672 dives to have that experience. I am very lucky!
I am on the radio every week. I talk about the top news stories in the paper. I don’t think a career as Radio DJ beckons, but it is very cool and I have met some really fab people.
I have seen some pretty famous people perform live: David Bowie at Glastonbury (amazing!), Pink Floyd at Hyde Park (Fabulous), Bob Dylan at the London O2 (absolutely dreadful, worst gig I have ever been to!!!!)
Gary Barlow followed me on Twitter last month – I had a huge goofy smile on my face all day.
I was very fortunate to have back stage passes for the recent Monty Python tour at the O2. It was very cool and I got to meet them all. I had a drunken chat with Michael Palin
I once went to see Mark Steel do a gig in Bristol. Afterwards my husband bumped into him and got chatting. Before I knew it we were drinking beer and playing pool. He was an amazingly nice and interesting man.
I am exceptionally scared of heights. It causes real problems when I am trying to get the courage to take off down a ski run! I do it though, mainly because I usually have no choice!
