harmony, responsibility and consistency (I’m the voice of reason and sanity in the office!). Oh, and drinking coffee, I’m pretty good at that.
I run my client accounts like clockwork ensuring everyone’s happy, the work is organised and we deliver the best communication for our clients. It’s because of my love of lists. I can’t help it. And yes, I am one of those people who adds things to the list, just so they can cross them off...
walking in my local park with my husband and loopy lurcher Ludo, on my bike training for a ride that said husband persuaded me would be a good idea :), and re-fuelling with a cup of coffee at a local cafe while planning our next trip away.

at home in beautiful Edinburgh, re-energising and elbow deep in the earth in my garden which I adore. Or maybe I’m taxi-ing the family around. Or maybe laughing my socks off with my friends over a glass of wine.

doing loads of stuff. I might be cheering (or crying!) at the football, horse riding, gardening, having fun with friends or simply curled up by the fire with a good book (or with a cool beer in the garden).
