TEN RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME
I cannot decide if my favourite book is Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice which I have read many, many times or Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead which I have read once only but found profoundly moving.
I always wear earrings, as I feel naked without them.
I cannot sing. However I read somewhere that everyone can be thought how to sing; so going to a singing class is on my list of things to do.
If I were asked to describe myself in five words I would say I am: shy, optimistic, conscientious, loyal and forgiving (those of course are the good bits).
I am inordinately fond of cake much to the detriment of my waistline.
My style icons are Ines de la Fressange and Michelle Obama.
The trait I admire most in others is empathy.
Five things I think I couldn’t live without but almost certainly could if I had to are: decent coffee, my car, dark chocolate, black opaque tights and central heating.
I am an introvert.
My all time favourite quote is “To whom much is given much is required”. It’s from the bible, which surprises me as I am not especially religious.
