This is where you can find out a little bit more about Katie….
Favourite colour: purple, you have to have a favourite if you work with children as you will be asked at least once a week.
favourite film: I’m a film snob, I can’t abide care chases or special effects. Anything with an excellent script and talented actors, even if it only cost £50 to make.
If I could be introduced to anyone in the world, who would I choose from the following categories:
actor / actress: So many, I love the theatre and there are literally hundreds, however I would really like to meet Samuel West, I would talk to him about Shakespeare and admire his hair.
musician: I know so little about music… perhaps I could meet a whole orchestra because I am always fascinated how so many people and instruments can sound so good together.
cartoon character: I have a soft spot for SpongeBob Squarepants. But also the Raggy Dolls from the 80’s/90’s I loved them.
sports person: Cricket, any cricketer who was in the 2005 ashes side.
book character: George Kirrin from the Famous Five (and Timmy) my heroine growing up, she can do anything any boy can do and that’s such an important message. And she never told lies. She was also grumpy and cross but loyal and bright.
writer: Shakespeare. I love William Shakespeare.
I love spending time doing these things:
1- cooking and baking
2- watching (Disney) films with my fiance
3- listening to many many podcasts; The Parapod, Frank Skinner, No Such thing as a fish, Dedicated to DLP, Magical Disneyland Paris Podcast, Elis James and John Robins, Answer Me This….
I would never spend time doing these things:
1- playing any sort of sport
2- staying up late
3- being anywhere loud
I worry about…. so many things, but I’m getting better at it.
I am proud of…. making this podcast, it started with a small ambition and a text message and look at where we are now.
I am interested in…. theatre, drama, actors, cakes, Disney, words and their meanings.
I am afraid of…. not a lot. With my imagination I’ve always imagined something scarier! Apart from crabs – I hate them.
I don’t believe in…. telling people what they want to hear instead of the truth.
I am good at…. thinking and analysing
I am poor at…. getting out of bed or away from the computer to actually do things.
I have to…. remember that people are allowed to like different things to me and it doesn’t make them bad.
Comedians, my nephews & niece and Jen’s hashtags….make me laugh
Seeing the way the majority of children are being brought up….make me sad
