About Me

CURRENT MISSION

(to survive my children being teenagers!) to meet lots of interesting people

ABOUT ME

I am a Spa Therapit specialising in massage at Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa. I am qualified Holistic Therapist and have a workshop space where i'm hoping to run workshops making fresh skincare and bath bombs and run kids bath bomb making parties. i also make soaps and natural fresh skincare from local ingredients and use ancient egyptian recipes. I love cocktails, baking, customising clothes, crafts and gin!

PHILOSOPHY

at the moment i seem to live for driving my son to all his sports clubs!!!! I love my work and am passionate abut making people feel better and de-stress.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I haven't yet participated. i would love my family and i to travel staying with different people, to really get a feel for their real way of lfe. I would be happy to meet for coffee (depending on work, i seem to be there 24 hours a day!) and to host if you don't mind a camp bed - and if you can squeeze in with my boys (12 and 17 years), cat, dog and hubby!!

ME - ancient cultures, 17th-19th century social history, burlesque, theatre, i love musicals (but i sing terribly!), soap making, jewellery making, writing, playing poker, starwars, playing the saxophone, tramploining, wild swimming, visiting historic houses .... think thats all!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I suppose the obligatory "giving birth" but to be honest having a cup of tea made for me by my son is amazing!! and my job!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach massage, natural skincare, baking and cocktail making.
My partner teaches photography and my son can teach you how to play x-box!!!
I'd love to learn more about history and how to sing! and my youngest son wants to be a stuntman so any tips there would be great!
