Quick Questions

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time I run an Ostomy and IBD Support Group (Sheppey Ostomy Group Support) and my blog ‘Storm in a Tea Cup’. I have two children aged 2 and 4, who take up much of my time and also love to play Roller Derby!

What is your favourite book?

My favourite book would be anything involving a forensic pathologist. I hate horror movies and gore but love a great crime thriller!

Do you collect anything?

I collect tea paraphernalia. As you can tell from my blog name, I love tea and the ritual of taking tea with friends. My roller derby name is ‘Dita Von Tea’. I have a few beautiful teacups and teapots and many novelty tea strainers.
