A little bit about me: I'm old enough to know better, but often don't. I'm Mum to three daughters aged between 10 and 19 and have three dogs (none of which are officially mine), one rabbit (which is now officially mine because the 10-year-old refuses to clean him out) and Super Wife (ha! He'd find that hilarious!) to my husband Rich. I often wake up to find bodies lying prostate on my sofas and assume they are friends of my children, which they usually are. I can cook, but try to avoid it wherever possible. My ideal day would be to spend the whole day in the attic, where my office is located, writing insightful and witty copy for my lovely editors and publishers - this pleasure doesn't happen very often since changing my name from Deb to Mum. Having quickly realised that I don't make a good employee - of the 30 jobs I've had, I've walked out of 29 of them - I became self-employed and think I now have one of the best jobs in the world. I'm a huge fan of 80's music (well someone has to be) and I get cranky if I don't have chocolate to hand.
