Family information

I live with my husband and three sons (1997, 2003 and 2016). My husband runs his own soft skills training business (public speaking, confidence, leadership etc.) and is a specialist in working with people with learning difficulties. His interests include reading, languages (he is a TEFL teacher), and world affairs.
Our eldest son is at university where he is studying Pure Maths. He is a Level 2 tennis coach. Our middle son is in secondary school and his interests include swimming, tennis, archery, playing on the X-box and arts and crafts. I like cooking, travelling and observing nature and natural beauty. I am also a keen student of alternative therapies and personal development. As a family, we like eating out, visiting attractions and going to the cinema. We have travelled all over Europe on driving holidays because we love learning about and experiencing different cultures.
