Who are you closest to?
That comes down to who I trust. So, my boyfriend – I know I can tell him pretty much anything. Even though we don’t see each other as much as we would like we still text, talk, email throughout the day. A difficult one though because I’d also say I’m very close to my two friends Helen and Sara – even though we can not talk for a week or so we can pick up from where we left off. They’ve all been there when I’ve needed them the most. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank them enough or show them just how grateful I am.
What’s your earliest memory?
Watching my dad shaving in the morning. Then watching my cousin use a razor on her face (she must have been sorting upper lip hair out) because I then decided I had to do it too. So I shaved my face. I was very very young. There was a lot of blood. I can still see the scar in the right light.
What is your biggest fear?
Not getting to live the life I want to live.
What do you do to relax?
All being well and physically OK, I walk. I love walking. Lately though, it’s baths using Elemis bath milk and reading until the water starts to go cold. Then I top it up with boiling water again. Sometimes I’ll let myself fall asleep in the bath too. I’ll put the kindle down first though. Or, I’ll get into bed with a notebook and pen, a pile of magazines, a book I’m reading and some nail varnish. I’ll paint my nails, read magazines, write notes to myself or even a list – I love writing lists. I’ll read and then eventually I’ll get under the duvet and have a nap – nothing nicer than a nap at two in the afternoon.
What are you best at?
These days? Probably online shopping.
What do you value in a partner?
Honesty. Whatever it is, I’d just rather know. I need the truth. Loyalty too. Oh and humour. Passion.This could end up a long list..
When was the last time you were happy?
Monday afternoon. I’d seen a friend I’ve not seen for over a year. It was nice to catch up and hear how much both our lives have changed. Even though we’ve both been through horrible situations, we were talking about the good bits and both grinning. It was nice to just think and talk about the good happy stuff.
Your biggest regret?
Not asking why there was methadone in the kitchen cupboard when I found it age 14 (or about that age). Never asking questions.
What’s the one thing you’d change about yourself or your life?
My health – it would be perfect for the rest of my life. Oh and I’d have bigger boobs.
