Favourite expression?
“Go with your gut”
Most likely to be seen reading?
Although I'd like to say anything by John Steinbeck, these days its more likely to be from the pre-school range.  Julia Donaldson's books are a big hit in our house right now.
The Movie of Your Life – who’d play you?
- (wishfully thinking) Julia Roberts
Where you’ll never see Gillian?
On a golf course!
Happy Place?
Anywhere at all with my favourite people in tow, my husband and two girls, but the peace of driving somewhere on my own while listening to my favourite podcast (Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert) is pretty great too.
Desert Island Disc(s)?
Anything folk rock from Tracy Chapman's debut album to David Gray's "White Ladder" and a bit of Béyonce thrown in for good measure.
That Thing You’d Save in a Fire?
Our dog, Abi, but in fairness she'd probably be out of there before I would be!
Gillian IRL (In Real Life)
With two young girls, life is fairly hectic but in the best possible way.  I love to cook and bake, with varying degrees of success, but mainly love to have family and friends over for food and chats.  In another life, I would have loved to have my own little neighbourhood café - You never know, life's not over yet!
