What’s your job? What do you love about it?
I’m a freelance editor and designer and started working for myself a year ago. I do a bit of everything – from proofreading books to designing brochures, doing photoshoots and even painting murals. I love the variety and being able to work where and when I want to (which seems to involve a lot of my sofa!). I’ve also got a sideline as a new travel blogger at www.ontheluce.com which lets me combine my big loves of photography, writing and travel.
Why do you like Invite for a Bite?
I do a bit of solo travel and never liked eating on my own so the site is a great way to meet up with other women from around the world. Plus I’ve moved to a new area recently so it”ll also be good to meet people who live nearby or are travelling here.
What have you invited people to on Invite for a Bite?
I fancy learning to cook something new so have put up an invite to see if anyone would like to do a cookery class in the Forest of Dean, learning to make pasta or tapas or something (and obviously eating it afterwards!).
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve eaten?
I did a wine-tasting tour around Margaret River in Western Australia, and a few wineries in we had a picnic and got to try kangaroo, crocodile and pate made out of mealy grubs. Must have been the wine as I wouldn’t have eaten them sober!
Which women, living now or in the past, would you invite to an ifab dinner party?
My mum and grandmothers, Judi Dench, Alex Kingston and Meryl Streep.
Where are you from? When you’re traveling what food from your country do you miss the most?
I’m from Herefordshire in England. My favourite English foods would definitely be a roast dinner and a good cup of tea!
If you could be in one place right now, where would it be?
On a beach in South East Asia, drinking a cold beer and eating freshly caught fish off the barbecue.
Nosy, we know, but what are you having for dinner tonight?
I’m cooking up a roasted vegetable lasagne.
