Well, just for the record, I'm actually a Hard Rock fan not thrash metal! The thrash metal comes from Simon taking the mickey! I enjoy attending live gigs and spending Summer long weekends at festivals. My favourite and most attended festival is the Download Festival.
I was born in the sleepy hollow of Pietermaritzburg which is in the province of Kwazulu Natal in South Africa. When I was 21 years old I decided to full up my back pack and take a trip to England with the intention to travel the UK and Europe. 18 years later and I now have a husband, a child and a house in England.
Both...and I will even go as far as having them together!
I would live in Spain. I especially love the diversity of Spain...its lush beaches, challenging mountain ranges, lively people, late nights, perfect weather, good food and quality wines. What more could one ask for?
I have a few favourite sports but my ultimate favourite is tennis. I was a provincial player in my youth and since my son showed an interest in playing tennis I have thoroughly enjoyed getting back into the sport. It's true what they say about never forgetting something you've done in the past!
I also enjoy trail and fell running as well as mountain biking. I live in the beautiful Forest of Dean which is perfect for all outdoor sports.
My favourite contemporary piece has to be the Sellack Lantern. Such a simple design yet so attractive. One day I am hoping to fill my house with Sellacks!
