I have a King Charles Spaniel called Alfie, he is 6 years old and helped me get over my life long phobia of dogs after being quite badly bitten on my hand by my Grandmother’s dog when I was about 8.

I am allergic to plasters and rhubarb.
I love candles, Yankee is my favourite.
I love shoes and bags and have a nice collection of both but could always make room for more.
I don’t drive, I failed my test over 25 years ago and never took another, it doesn’t really bother me because there are so many idiots on the road.
I used to be agoraphobic, which was a result of severe post natal depression, after a very traumatic c-section, not just the baby blues, I could not leave the house for some time and when I did I couldn’t go out alone, it lasted a number of years.
I can’t draw but wish I could, my Dad can draw and had several failed attempts to teach me.

I can’t eat dark green cabbage, however it is cooked I find so bitter.
