When I am not at work, I love spending time with my Husband Justin and our dog Alvie. In 2017 we converted a VW Crafter Long Wheel Base van into a Campervan and we often spend weekends down in Devon and Cornwall in the van. Justin likes to surf - I have had a go and although I did lots of swimming when I was younger, and I enjoy the surfing bit, I don't like the waves very much! I will persevere.
We have had some longer trips in the camper too - driving down to the Algarve through France and Spain as well as doing the Scotland North Coast 500 and holidaying in France.
I really enjoy our dog walks too. We are in a lovely location surrounded by beautiful countryside so are spoilt by the places we can go although Alvie's favourite is over the golf course in Highworth - she loves it there. I also like hiking and have attempted the National 3 peaks twice - the second time, I was at the top of all 3 in 24 hours (not up and down).
In August 2018, I cycled from London to Paris in aid of Neuroblastoma UK. Neuroblastoma is a form of childhood cancer. I raised over £4,600. I wouldn’t say I now have the cycling bug but I do like a ride out into the Cotswolds for a cup of tea and a slice of cake.You can read more about the ride in my blogs.
As well as spending time with Justin and Alvie, I have quite a large family and lots of friends who are all very important to me so I spend a lot of time with them too. This often involves travelling up and down the country and even to Portugal to see my Mum and sister but its all worth it.
I love travelling and exploring new places and hope to do a lot more of it in the future .
