What was the last gig/concert you went to?

Last week, I went to Gosfest where I ran the tearoom for the weekend. I was promoting loads of my products and also selling tea, coffee, popcorn and candyfloss on behalf of Tada Events Ltd as well as my own cakes. We didn’t have a lot of time to see the music, but my friend went backstage when M.A.D came off from their performance and we managed to get a picture with them which was definitely the highlight of my weekend!

What about the last theatre show you saw?

Phantom of the Opera. My boyfriend took me away to London in April and we went and saw the performance while there. It’s a beautiful production. The cast were fantastic. I’m hoping to see the spin-off show of what happens next when I’m next there on business.

And the last book you read?

A Street Cat Named Bob. The story was very touching and it was a great read.

What was the last film you saw?

P.S. I Love You. It’s my favourite film of all time, and so I’ve watched it a fair few times as well as read the book.

What’s your favourite way to relax?

I love to sit on the sofa in the evenings and watch TV. I love to catch up on all the soaps and no one else in my house does so it means I get a bit of alone time. Having a young child and a business means I don’t get a lot of time to myself so whenever I do, I like to just chill out.

What do you watch on TV?

I don’t get much time for TV, so Netflix works for me! I love watching series on it. I’ve just finished watching Prison Break, and have now moved onto Dexter.

Which celeb would you most like to spend a weekend with?

It would have to be Paul Hollywood. As a baker, I find him very inspirational. I can learn a lot from him.

Where do you shop?

I love TK Maxx. I’m a bit of a bargain shopper so love finding stuff in there that’s been marked down.

Where do you eat out?

Stones in Fareham. It’s one of my favourite places for eating out during the day. Or if I’m going out for dinner my favourite restaurant is by far Cafe Tusk. I love Indian food.

What’s your signature dish if you’re cooking?

It would have to be my brownies, they were the first gluten free product I came up with. I’ve had such great reviews about them ever since so the only change I’ve ever made to them is adding cherries.

What about pubs and bars? Where do you go?

I’m a little bit of a Kingsley’s and Popworld fan, so on a night out me and the girls will happily start off in Kingsleys for the two for one on cocktails and end up dancing the night away in Popworld afterwards.

Where’s good for a day out locally?

Hayling Island funfair. It’s fun and a lot cheaper than some of the others. My daughter loves it there.
