Thank you for stopping by to look at my's a little bit about me... I live in the Uk with a hungry husband and two of my three fussy daughters. We follow a low carb diet which keeps our weight in check and I can stay off he makes me poorly. I love making cakes, cookies and desserts for family and friends. In my life I am looking for world peace, unlimited supplies of organic chocoalte & self cleaning kitchen floors! I am at my happiest when getting paid, drinking wine & cooking cakes but it makes me very unhappy when it's my turn to wash up, when someone eats my chocolate, drinks my wine or uses my toilet!

Outside of work I try to be as inactive as possible, although I do a bit of dog walking with ozzy (thankfully he only has little legs and doesn't need to go far. <a href=""><img src="" /></a> <a href=""><img src="" /></a> I am also interested in working towards early retirement, we intend to leave the kids in the house, travel around Europe in a silver camper van 'doing' all the F1 Grand Prix spending their inheritance as we go!! My favourite films in no particular order are: Pulp Fiction, Blues Brothers, Dirty Dancing, Fight Club, Pretty Women,Vanilla Sky, The Breakfast Club, Hideous Kinky (although the book is better), Ferris Buellers day off, Autumn in New York, Mistress of Spices, Splash, Scent of a Women, When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Notting Hill I could go on and on and on....but I won't!!!! Some of my favourite books are, 365 Bedtime Stories, Harry Potter, Pomegranate soup, Julie / Julia Project, Hideous Kinky, Dinner with a perfect Stranger, The Tao of Pooh, this list really could go on and on and become endless as I am an avid reader.
