I am married and a mum with a nearly twelve year old son. I work as an Exams Officer in a local secondary school – until recently I was editor of a women s lifestyle website which I started with a friend and had some great fun including having a book published. I have written a book which I published to Kindle... and at least one person bought it, woo-hoooo! I love Abba and anything
eighties, pink sparkly with the girls, red wine with nice food

idea about fashion, have never been able to blow-dry my hair
and am always on a diet.
