What inspires me and what I believe in

I cherish being a hands on mum and playing the busy juggling game that is motherhood - I wouldn't change it for the world.

I believe in being a quality person who makes time for people, no matter how busy you think you are. Quality connections and true generosity nourish the soul and bring happiness. It's what life is about.

I believe in paying it forward. It always feels better to give than receive.

I believe in animals and truly believe we underestimate them in every way. We need to be their voice, to nurture and protect them.
