Tell us about yourself
Southerner living in Yorkshire. I love (colourful) fashion, cats, books and the coast. I speak Swedish. Married with two just-about-grown-up boys..
Tell me something about yourself that no one would believe.
Maybe …. that I’m a university lecturer with three degrees (my husband told me when we first met that I don’t look like an academic and he worked at a university at the time!).
