Member of the Month - March 2017
What made you join Cam City WI?
I was looking to join a WI for a while but never seemed to get around to it! Then Bronwyn was telling me about how fabulous Cam City was and hey presto!
Who inspires you and why?
I have along list of people who inspire me, all for very different reasons!
Florence Nightingale - using evidence in nursing for the first time.
Nelson Mandela - standing strong for his beliefs and bringing about far reaching change.
The Queen- great leader with great insight.
Aung Sang Suu Kyi - another strong woman who was steadfast in her beliefs to bring about change despite the personal consequences.
JK Rowling - Talented but very grounded woman who is highly philanthropic.
My Mum - strong woman who quietly lives her life but impacts so many in her community.
What's your life philosophy?
Life is short; make the most of it!
Along the way, treat others as you want to be treated yourself.
What are your secret skills / guilty pleasures / what's your poison?
I love lots of art and crafts and have lots of projects on the go. They have to be completed quickly though as outside of work Im not very patient!
I like nothing more than crafting all day with friends and a glass on wine!
I love great food and wine. The last wine festival I went to I tasted 42 different wines in 4 hours! I needed a hearty breakfast, snacks and meal afterwards!
Guilty Pleasure - Handbags. A girl can never have enough!
If you had a million pounds, what would you do with it?
I’d be so shocked I would probably put it in the bank and not tell anyone to start with! Once I’d gotten over the shock, I would definitely pay the mortgage off, share it with family and then plan lots of holidays!
What's on your bucket list?
I don’t have a bucket list as such but I do have a long list of places in the world I want to visit clipped to my calendar!
What would your ideal day entail?
I can’t decide on one so can I have more than one please?
Walking up a hill on a dry day with my husband Graham, and being amazed at what I see around me.
Wondering around an ancient site in a foreign country, enjoying what I see and meeting the locals (who always seem to want selfies!)
Walking across a beach in wild weather- it certainly gets rid of cobwebs!
There are lots more but more than 3 would be greedy!
