Tracey (trakka) 1. Significant other? Children? Pets?

I have a husband who I met 17.5 years ago. We have been married almost 16 years.

I have 2 daughters who are 8 and 6.

We have a lovely little rabbit, Bertie. Such a placid and friendly rabbit.

2. What do you do for a living?

I am a qualified accountant but I have recently moved full time into the process improvement world. I enjoy fixing things!

3. What is your favorite color?

Red.

4. What destination would be your dream vacation?

Funnily enough around Australia. I grew up in Australia but of course took it for granted when I lived there. Now I would love to go in a campervan (with all the comforts of course!) and travel around and see the beautiful country. Unfortunately we struggle to get out there very much (cost and taking time off work) and when we do ALL my family and friends want to see us so we don't get to see much of the country. I need to sneak out there without anyone knowing!

5. What is your favorite book genre?

I will give just about any genre ago but I think my 2 favourites are Historical Fiction and Mystery & Suspense.

6. Who are three of your favorite authors?

Bryce Courtenay - an Australian author who I have loved since my late teens.
Ken Follett - I have read quite a few of his and have enjoyed all that I have read.
Harlan Coben - love his Myron Bolitar series and have read a number of his standalones which I enjoyed.


7. What's your favorite word?

Think it would have to be "lovely". I seem to use it a lot!!!

8. What actress/actor should play you a film in your life story?

I am not a movie person and am not very good at famous people. I would probably walk past most of them and not realise. However someone was absolutely convinced I had a resemblance to Sandra Bullock so I will go with her. Personally I cannot see it.

9. Will you tell us a funny or favorite story about yourself?

My favourite story was when I came to the UK....

I was only coming to the UK for a 2 year working holiday. My grandmother (who has since passed on) insisted I would meet an Englishman and stay. "No I won't Grandma. I will be back."

Anyway I struggled to get some contracting work to start with and the Aussie dollar was not doing so great so when I finally did get a contracting role I decided I couldn't go to the work Christmas party due to the cost and also I would lose out on the hours as it was at lunch time and I was being paid on an hourly rate. The morning of the Christmas party my manager said to me that someone had pulled out due to sickness and didn't know if they could get the money back for his place. I piped up "I'll go". Something told me that I should go...

I met my husband at the party. He worked at a different location and it is very unlikely we would have met if I hadn't gone to the party. Meant to be!

So my grandma was right... Here I still am after almost 18 years and it doesn't look like I am going back! Our wedding was in Australia and she did make it and absolutely adored my husband :-)

10. What are your hobbies?

Reading of course! Plus cross stitching, travelling, time with my husband and girls.

11. Where is your favorite place to read?

In a park under a shady tree

12. What is your favorite sport to watch or play?

I enjoy watching just about all sports. 2 I don't particularly like are Soccer and Golf!

I do really enjoy the Olympics.

13. What was your favorite subject in school?

Maths and Accounting

14. How are you creative?

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Not me....

Tracey (trakka) 15. What is your favorite sandwich?

Mozzarella, sundried tomatoes and basil toasted on a panini. Yum!

16. What do you think is your very best feature or characteristic?

I'm quite a caring person and always like to try and help people if they are going through a bad patch.

17. If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?

BBQ with a few good friends and lots of laughter!

18. If you could paint a picture of anything, what would you paint?

My daughters. I would love to be able to capture their lovely personalities.
