… but who am I? Well this is me beaming on my wedding day back in 2002. I remember this moment clearly – a line from a poem written and read by my husband had our family and friends roaring with laughter, albeit moments earlier we had also been rapidly blinking away tears – three cheers for waterproof mascara! This is how we wanted our wedding ceremony to be.
I was a commercial lawyer for more years than I care to remember – but I have got over that now! It may be due to my years as a lawyer, or perhaps I am just naturally curious, that I relish quizzing my couples.
My happy place is the New Forest where I live with my husband – still penning the occasional poem – our teenage son, and two thoroughly spoilt rescue moggies.
My happy moments are as a ‘proud mum’ clapping and whooping (apparently too enthusiastically!) at school concerts; finishing that early morning 5k when I nearly didn’t force myself out the house; being with our great friends whether around a dinner table, out on our bikes, or in a lovely New Forest pub.
I have few dislikes – but please, no rhubarb or gooseberry ever!
