Melody of life runs deep in Myf

Mother of five al­ways has her hands full

Dalby Herald - - LIFE | COMMUNITY -

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

Fe­lic­ity Huff­man, her rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Lynette in Des­per­ate Housewives chan­nels so much of my own par­ent­ing and friend­ship traits, I think she’d cap­ture my quirks per­fectly!

What do you think the great­est in­ven­tion has been?

Turn­ing cof­fee beans into the life­sav­ing bev­er­age it cur­rently is.

Do you have any lucky items, ob­jects or tra­di­tions?

My walk with God, He gives me strength for my life, and helps me to al­ways look to the fu­ture with hope.

Is there any­thing you wished would come back into fash­ion?

Drop­ping in on friends unan­nounced, just hav­ing the front door open and a re­volv­ing time of friends, fun and food.

What three things do you think of most each day?

My boys! Giv­ing them each the in­di­vid­ual time and love they need, and ap­pre­ci­at­ing each of their very dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties.

All my jug­gling jobs of work and vol­un­teer­ing. Keep­ing Dalby parkrun rolling along, my 25 pi­ano and vi­o­lin stu­dents, ac­com­pa­ny­ing and per­form­ing gigs, plus vol­un­teer­ing with Eisteddfod, Arts Coun­cil and the Gallery. Enough to keep me busy!

House­work... but let’s not think about that now ....

What’s been the best de­ci­sion you've made in your life so far?

My hus­band Chris, ac­cept­ing his job as a teacher here in Dalby.

This town suits our fam­ily, and I have grown to love the area and the peo­ple.

If you could re­place one body part with a su­per bionic re­place­ment what body part and what fea­tures would the new bionic re­place­ment have?

Very nerdy, but some­thing in­side my brain so that when I imag­ine a piece of mu­sic in my head it can tran­scribe it di­rectly to a piece of pa­per – turn the thoughts into beau­ti­ful mu­sic!

What was your first car? (or what would you like it to be?)

I’m look­ing for­ward to up­grad­ing our car to a proper seven seater. I’m lik­ing the look of the new Kia, big with­out look­ing too much like a box!

What do you con­sider is the most im­por­tant ap­pli­ance in a house?

Two words. Cof­fee ma­chine.

What his­tor­i­cal pe­riod would you like to live in if you could go back in time?

Ger­many, in the early 1700s so that I could learn from and play be­side my favourite com­poser of all time, Jo­hann Se­bas­tian Bach.
