GIRL ABOUT SHEFFIELD
Born and bred Yorkshire, I fell in love with Sheffield when I moved from York in 2002 to undertake a business and marketing degree at Hallam University and my heart has never left the city. I thought I was destined for London. But after a 15-month stint in the Smoke during my degree, where I was so skint I had to loiter around supermarkets at closing time to raid the whoopsie shelves and was rationed to one Weetabix for breakfast, I gratefully returned to Sheff where people openly talk to strangers and it’s ok to eat chips with gravy.
I met my husband Warren on my very last night living in Sheffield after finishing my degree through my passionate hate for RnB music. We got married in Sheffield in 2013, and our daughter Emily crashed into our lives a year later.
Twins descended upon us in August 2018 and life has been a little more intense since then.
I’ve always been active and outdoorsy. I’ve been lucky enough to climb Kilimanjaro, run the London marathon and cycle across France into Paris all for a charity close to my heart. I used to do triathlons and open water swimming, but this has gone by the wayside of late….
Other things I love: eating, music, arty stuff and talking. My years of going to Glasto are completely numbered, but I do try to get out to see bands and DJ’s… there is literally nothing better than dancing to live music with a beer in hand.
And now I’m now Girl about Sheffield. I love discovering new and great things about Sheffield and sharing my stories, so being part of the Girl About Blog Squad is perfect!
