My self-summary
I am a passionate, career focussed woman, looking to meet more interesting people in my life, either for friendship or something more serious. I spend quite a large amount of time working, so am trying this as opposed to more traditional routes of meeting someone, as I find London can be a difficult place to meet new people.

I am whimsical, curious, and friendly
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am head chef of a large events company in london, so call me if you fancy a bash!! its varied and interesting, stops me getting bored as no day is the same and I work in different venues all the time. Also now on a new self improvement thing - get rid of the dead wood in my life etc .... ok update, its not such a new job anymore, still fulfilling and interesting. Looking forward to travelling more in 2009, 2008 was way too work focussed. Well the travelling thing, Ive got as far as Scotland - the Highlands which are so incredibly beautiful and France, not as much travelling as I wanted but at least it is an improvement on last year. For 2010 I am absolutely planning on a few meals out in fabulous restaurants and taking a whole lot of me time!! (Well a girl can dream) I also have long range plans for leaving the corporate rat race and starting my own business again. My latest venture, requires a whole lot of high heels and lingerie!! Yes finally I am on the way to becoming a Burlesque dancer!! It is the most amazing and liberating thing I have done in ages. Plus having a whole lot of legitimate reasons to buy pretty girly lingerie is awesome!!!
I’m really good at
Being me, whizzing up fabulous food, hitting the bars and pubs of london, shopping shopping shopping! - I love searching out perfect gifts for people, seeing the brighter side of things. Random trivia, being a good listener and problem solver.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ooh not sure, ill ask the friends and fill in later, probably that im talkative :) maybe that im a closet geek? My strange talent for filthy innuendos (haha, I have worked in a kitchen and around men for way too long)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hard to name favourites of any of these as there are so many and things depend on my taste at the time - I am quite changeable like that... Movies that give me that happy feeling are stigmata (makes me think) priscilla queen of the desert, random chick flicks, anything that provides pure escapism and tends to put a smile on my face or gives me something to go away and think about. I seem to have had no time to actually go to the movies this year, but have caught a few dvd's at home, was quite suprised how much I enjoyed the Wolverine prequal. Books; I will read anything from trash, to biographys, currently lots of chick lit as its where I am at the moment, ie single in London. I always have piles of magazines floating about, usually next to the bed of in the depths of my bag. I have a pretty large selection of nlp type books and some of a more spiritual vein. I find religion/spirituality fascinating. I adore reading loads of cookbooks - aka food porn! Favourite food changes all the time it just depends on what im cooking or in the mood for. I am dying to go to el bulli in spain or to the Fat Duck, when I can afford it and get a booking just to eat perfection on a plate!
Six things I could never do without
My family and friends, my iphone, my laptop, Miss Lily the Pink, my car, my health. A good set of knives. Beautiful things to wear, my very perfect bed to climb into at night especially when it has freshly laundered sheets, gorgeous ingredients to cook with. Wine on a sunny day. Lots of sunny days, music, great friends, lots of fabulous shoes, dark chocolate, coffee, books and magazines to read....ooh gosh that is so much more than six isnt it???
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life, and why things are the way they are? The big questions fascinate me. Also been doing a lot of thinking on spirituality lately. I am always curious and love learning new things. Every so often I go through a hugely introspective phase, where I delve into myself to re-evaluate my ideals and values and hopefully grow some more as a person. Also such random things as howcome I end up with so much stuff in my handbag? why do the cats wake me up early then just go off to sleep once I'm awake and when is it my turn to win the damn lottery!!!??
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hard at work at an event, or having a chilled evening at home, occasionally I will be out and about in town with friends. These days it seems to be mostly chilling out at home.... Seems the older I get the more I relish a bit of "me" time
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A girl needs some secrets! but do feel free to ask away, I might reveal a little something :)
You should message me if
you fancy a chat, you want to whisk me off to the Fat Duck or simply meet for a coffee and a random discussion about life, the universe and everything.
The two of us
