So through December, it’s about time some of you got to know me. I will be posting 3/4 things each week you guys probably didn’t know about me. So, lets get cracking!
- I have loved to sing from a very young age – This comes from my mum. Growing up, my mum was a professional singer. As kids, me and my sister went to loads of different events and concerts that my mum performed at. I grew up in a very music orientated family, so it wasn’t a massive surprise that I found a great love in singing. My favourite memory of me singing was at high school. It was year 11 and we had a “Leaver’s Service” (I went to a C of E high school) and I had been chosen to sing as part of the service and I sang my GCSE Music performance piece which was my mum’s adapted version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow” Not many people at high school knew I could sing at seeing everyone enjoy it so much, is one of my happiest memories.
- Black coffee runs through my veins – I. Love. Coffee. It’s not the addiction to caffeine, although that is a very useful by-product. But I love the taste of coffee. I don’t mind lattes, cappuccinos etc but to me, there is nothing nicer than sitting down and reading your favourite book or watching your favourite film with a piping hot cup of black coffee. And I’m not talking just instant either. It warms my soul and makes me feel so happy.
- I’m now the proud owner of Holly the Labrador – I’ve always wanted a pet. But growing up, I didn’t want the responsibility of a pet. But as I’ve become an adult, I definitely wanted a dog. Sam, my husband’s family have had 3 family dogs growing up and as everyone grew up and flew the nest, we had a chance for Holly to come and live with us and we jumped at the chance. She’s a 10-year-old Black lab. We joke that living with us is her retirement home. She’s so chilled and really caring!
