I'm friendly, outgoing and like to think I have a good sense of humour. I'm a newbie to Airbnb so just little nervous!
Love meeting new people, making them feel comfortable and relaxed. I will do everything I can to make your stay enjoyable and help with any information you may need. You can email me in advance with any queries you may have.
I live upstairs and like my privacy ( as I'm sure you do) so please do not go into the studio/showroom (see below) or come upstairs unless invited.
A bit more about me:
Originally from Kent I moved to London and spent many years working in the fashion industry. Deciding I wanted more adventure I went travelling for 2 years through South East Asia and ended up working in Sydney, Australia for a year. Just a wonderful time of my life.
Came back to U.K. and settled in Edinburgh 1989. Love this city and never regret moving here.
Opened a shop selling quirky cards and gifts and then in 2006 set up a DIY Wedding stationery business and now work from home. Have a studio/showroom at the back of ground floor which customers can visit (on appointment) which is not that often. I demonstrate at wedding shows here in Edinburgh both spring and autumn.
Likes: good food, wine, TV, films, gardening, art.
I sing in an acapella choir. We have given yearly concerts in the Fringe Festival and appeared with Rod Stewart, Michael Buble, Kylie Minogue and Nicola Benedetti in a TV Christmas special at Sterling Castle.
Also adore dogs. Don't own one a the moment but walk friends' dogs and occasionally they come to stay. I have dog guards to stop them meeting and greeting if you don't like dogs.
I, personally, don't bark or bite.
