I am Mandy, hitting 45 this year and still no more sensible than I was at 30. Mind you I was always seen as the sensible type, I have no idea why and I know for a fact that several people will snigger around now. They know me properly.

So I hail from Carrickfergus, a nice seaside type town in Northern Ireland near Belfast but now live in Middlewich, Cheshire beside nice canals and walks (namely to country pub type places).

My kids are 17 and 2, and they are great even though I do now need a few home hair colourant sessions over the year.

Oh and I stammer. Interesting fact #256.
