I’m missing you all ❤️ I hope you are having fun at home and I’m looking forward to hearing about what you have all been up to.
Today its my turn to let you know a little bit about my life. I was born and bred in Glasgow, raised by my Mum and Dad. I have a little brother who is turning 30 next week, I’ll leave my age to your imagination 😉
I’ve been trained by a Michelin star chef (although I’m sure my husband would disagree 🙈) and also spent a week working in Florence, Italy in restaurants when I was in 5th year in school.
I met my husband on holiday in Magaluf (nope not romantic at all 🙈) when I was 19. We had a long distance relationship before he moved up here. One of his brothers live up here too and is married to one of my friends. His Mum moved up a few years ago to Paisley so she could see her grandchildren more.
My husband is called Kirk and he is Welsh. We often travel down to see our family who live in North Wales, we have a little neice down there who we really miss.
We got married in a barn in Shropshire, it was an empty canvas so every detail of our day had to be either hired in or made by us. I spent the day before we got married decorating our venue, Pimhill Barn and its grounds. I loved both our families and friends getting to be together as we all lived so far apart and Kirk loved the hogroast 🤣
I have 2 children – Seren (its Welsh), 9 and Keir 3. Seren is very artistic, she loves to draw, paint and create things, a positive from being at home more means she had got to spend more time on this skill and lots of family and friends are getting some nice artwork👌. Seren is like a mini me sometimes although I don’t know if that is necessarily a good thing 🤣. Keir keeps me on my toes and is definitely a little comedian… I’m dreading him going to school as I think he will be the class clown 🙈
After leaving Cartmill I spend most of my nights and weekends taking my daughter to dance class. She absolutely adores it and is still taking online classes to keep fit and learn new routines.
Our family love Disney (just like a few of my Cartmill colleagues) Orlando is our happy place. We love all the rides, even Keir is a little dare devil who puts his hands up in the air and shouts at everyone else to do the same, even strangers 🤣 I love all the yummy food too and always indulge when I’m there 😋 My favourite character is Stitch who is yours? We love the magic it brings and the memories its allowed us to make. I can’t wait to go back again (hopefully next year).
I’ve had a million and one hair colours over the years, these are a few I could find 🤣 I’ve went darker since being away from Cartmill and contemplating going another colour soon (the things we get up to for entertainment on lockdown eh?)
My best friends are girls I went to secondary school with, 2 of these girls I’ve actually known since nursery! So you never know in years to come you may still be friends with children from Cartmill ❤️ People find it so strange when I tell them as there is quite a big group of us who are all still in contact. Its been lovely and I feel blessed as we’ve all watched each other grow up, start careers, get married, have children and much more. I’m missing them all at the moment – just as I’m sure you are all missing your friends – but we keep in touch on the phone and through social media and have quiz nights to keep us connected.
I love going to the gym and mainly lift weights, I normally go before I come to Cartmill but I’m having to make do with body weight workouts at home just now. I also love hillwalking and going on big walks. I love doing various fitness challenges like, bubble rush, tough mudder and the Kiltwalk and I’m always keen to give a new challenge a bash. I love the rush I get from exercising and definitely can’t wait to get back to the gym.
I thought i’d end this with a little video which will tell you a little bit more about me but from my daughter Seren’s view. Don’t laugh too much now🙈 btw I disagree with some of her opinions 😂😂😂
Take care, stay safe and I will hopefully see you all soon ❤️
