My grandmother (Mum) brought me up.
I find life too fast.
My friends have always been family to me. 
I simply cannot watch scary films. 

Questions I was asked;

  2. What is your signature dish?  Chicken Balti
  3. How do you drink your coffee? No coffee for me, never liked the taste, hot water or green tea (sounds really healthy, but I have a weakness for chocolate).

  8. If you could stand up for one cause, what would it be? Human Rights, broad I know, but a difficult question to narrow down.
  9. Which colour makes you happy? Lots of colours, but I love grey the most, to wear, on the walls, and ceramics.
  10. What, if anything, have you given up for lent?  What I consume, being aware of what I eat, spend and electricity I am using.
  11. Where would you go right now, if you could click your fingers and be there? Paris for the romance, NYC for the atmosphere, Portland for the creatives out there!
