Sally, when are you at your happiest?

When I’m in a nice comfortable bed with proper goose down pillows and high-thread count Egyptian cotton bedlinen.  A glass of champagne wouldn’t go a miss!

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

A princess, well I live in hope!

When was the last time you cried?

With laughter when I watched the film ‘Bridesmaids’ last week.

What is your worst habit?

Sucking my thumb, shhhhhhhhh!

What can’t you leave home without?

Right, are you ready for this?  My iphone & charger, keys, wallet, diary, photos of my wedding day that appeared in Bride’s magazine (I know!!!), business cards, oyster card, notepad, pen, make-up bag, nurofen, mirror, safety pins, plaster, antiseptic wipes, antihistamines, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, sewing kit, chewing gum, tissues, hairband, perfume, sweeteners, hand cream, tape measure & tweezers.  What can I say?  I was a Girl Guide!

A wedding planner for sure.  I HEART weddings!
