THE REAL ME is summed up like this...

I've been busy raising my two kids and supporting my husband for the last fifteen years.

I love reading, cooking, and taking care of my family.  I also love cake, tea and shoes. I hate roller-coasters.  I also have a dislike for bad manners.

I am a Royalist.  Who doesn't love a picture of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry all loved up?

I'm all about showing kindness and gratitude and we have a ONE RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS rule in our home.  It costs nothing to be kind.

I always wanted to be a mum... and a writer.  I never thought the second one would actually happen.
