Nix is a school teacher, Dave is an accountant and they have known each other since they were 3 years old. They describe themselves as having the whole nerdy thing going on, but actually they are both creative dreamers with a flair for the offbeat.
Kerry, aka Monkey, is part of my book club which doesn’t read books. She is an old friend. The type of friend who has survived the cold dark winters of London with me, the type of friend that has been there for break ups and break downs, the type of friend that knew me when I was still serving drinks in a bars and wore a bindie every day because I was still in a post India haze.
Monkey teaches at Chelsea Primary School and some time ago she mentioned that she had been hanging out with the PE teacher quite a bit.
I do believe that Sally and Tom must be two of the most patient people in the world. Tom is an architect, and in my experience, patience is definitely required when dealing with builders. Sally teaches small children which definitely requires bucketloads of patience (who am I kidding? … oceanloads of patience would be a more apt description here) They are currently building their first home in London and are living in a construction site … more patience required.

Have you noticed that life has a funny way of throwing curveballs at you? Have you noticed how something that seems like the worst thing to have happened to you at the time often lands up being the best thing in the long run? Have you noticed that listening to your inner voice more often that not leads to personal growth?
Lisa dreamt of marrying her prince at a wedding fit for a princess. She wanted the fairy tale ….. the romance, the candles, the huge princess dress, the castle and the turrets. She found all of these things at the quirky Medieval Hillcrest venue, Greensleves. Both of them were transformed into Prince and Princess of the day without too much polishing and they certainly looked absolutely dashing together.
