A little more about me
I live in a village in the heart of the National Forest in Derbyshire. I live with my husband, very energetic daughter and dog who both keep me on my toes.
Having only moved to Derbyshire seven years ago, we love exploring the local area with our dog and always seem to discover something new! I’m a creative soul at heart and in my spare time, I like making arts and crafts, and celebration cakes. I loved to play the piano as a child and recently purchased a piano after years of saying I would. I'm enjoying playing the piano again and learning lots of new songs.
I’m also very interested in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). I particularly like this theory as it helps us understand how our minds are wired, how we make decisions and how we learn. Using this information then helps us understand how we can be the best possible version of ourselves and use life as a journey to achieve this. It is something I have always enjoyed reading about when I was first introduced to the theory at University. I read books, blogs and listen to podcasts about ‘type’ and enjoy the self-discovery and development of my own type (INFJ) and of the friends and family around me.
