Nikki, you’ll find her in the garden with a G&T……

Posted in: Blog, by nikki, on 30th May 2017 | 0 comments

I love holidays and travel, the only downside with working is that there never seems to be enough time to visit all the places on my wishlist! I think my favourite place in the world has to be Paris, I love the relaxed culture, the beautiful architecture, the museums, the food and the whole romanticism of the place. A little wander down the Seine, stopping for a cold beer on a Summers afternoon has to be my idea of heaven.

I absolutely LOVE breakfast, if I were to miss it I would be a complete cranky pants for the rest of the day. I usually have fruit with natural yogurt, followed by granary toast & marmite. But the weekend is a totally different kettle of fish because then I have the time to make something really yummy (and take the time to relax and enjoy it), like poached eggs & avocado on toast, marmite on crumpets or boiled eggs with asparagus dippers. Our local cafe does the BEST breakfast and often my husband and I will bumble down the road and spend an hour or so people watching over our brekkie – heaven.

My song of choice at Karaoke would be…… zero, zilch, nada – I love to sing but would not inflict it on anyone as I suspect I sound like a bag of kittens being strangled. On my drive to and from work it’s another story though…..the sound is turned up full blast, windows down and I’m squeaking out the tunes to my hearts content 🙂

The one food I couldn’t live without would be…Pizza. Tomatoes. Salad. Yogurts. Fruit. But mostly Pizza. I was trying to think of something that made me sound a little more glamorous and worldly, but it has to be pizza. Not those horrid cardboard tasting ones you get in the supermarket, no no no. It has to be freshly made, thin base, lots of tomato sauce, very garlicky, with tuna, anchovies, black olives, red onion, rocket and parmesan. Served with a (very) large glass of red wine. Sat outside in the sun. I’m easily pleased me.

Dream dinner date…..would always be my husband as we have the best time when we go out. But if he was unavailable, then it would be Prince William as I really like what he and the other young royals are doing for mental health awareness, I think its so important. I also think we would like a beer or five.

My pet hate is… Bad manners, especially people who are rude to waiters or other people in the service industry, I just can’t bear it, if I saw someone being rude in that instance I would definitely (and have done) stand their ground. There is no need to ever treat anyone with anything less than kindness and respect. Oh and I don’t like it when people eat/chew with their mouths open, or noisy eaters, makes me feel a bit queezy. And dirty finger nails… (I’ll stop now otherwise I’ll sound like a whinger).

My Summer tipple of choice is…….? I love a nice, ice cold glass of Prosecco or a Hendricks and Tonic (don’t forget the cucumber) sat outside in the garden with a good book 🙂

For the next few months I will be….Running like a madwoman as I’m training for the New Forest marathon in September. I’ve been a runner for some years, but for the last 18 months or so it has fallen by the wayside big time, so signing up for the marathon has been a great way for me to get back into it. And I’m loving it again, at the moment I do 2 or 3 short runs during the week, 1 5 miler on Saturday and between 10-15 miles on Sunday, which will slowly increase over the following months. It’s great to feel so fit and well again. Running also means I can indulge in my love of pizza guilt free, so win-win!

Me and Portmore – I love it here. We have a great team that is constantly growing and who are very supportive of each other, its wonderful to be a part of that. We have some HUGE changes planned for the next 6-18 months and it will really exciting to see how the practice will evolve in the near future.
