I grew up in …

Sydney with my mum and two younger sisters.

The first thing I do when I wake up is …

lie in bed convincing myself that  surely it isn’t time to get up yet! Thank goodness my husband is in charge of the alarm clock, as he makes it his mission to get me out of bed!

If I could be better at anything it would be …

swimming! I adore being by the ocean but I’m a hopeless swimmer. My favourite (only) stroke is ‘granny breaststroke’. I don’t like to put my head under the water and keep my sunnies perched on the top of my head!

I am at my happiest when …

my daughters, Allegra and Giselle are happy.

When I am not working I am …

watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I sneak it in after I’ve finished Studio 10 and before school pick up!

I wish I could …

sing.

My biggest fashion blunder was …

wearing a hot pink bubble skirt with blue braces, a hot pink short-sleeved shirt with a blue and white spotted bow tie. I was 13 years old and felt absolutely fabulous!

Most people don’t know that I …

am a notorious over-sharer, much to my husband Peter’s horror. I’m a big believer in saying it as it is and being honest about the messiness of life. People know I’m a crap housewife, dodgy driver, have had PND and am obsessed with cats!

When I was growing up I wanted to be …

an astronaut, a vet or a ballerina!

I couldn’t live without …

my family and our two cats Alfie and Daisy.

My greatest achievement is …

managing to get two small girls out the front door in the mornings and staying calm.

My most annoying habit is …

well, it depends who you ask! My husband would say my online shopping habit. My eldest daughter tells me that it’s my loud ‘woo-hooing’ at her basketball games. However, according to my mother, I sneeze too loudly!

I laugh out loud …

constantly. For me, laughter is the best medicine.

My hidden talent is …

touching the tip of my nose with my tongue.
