Meet Me: Anna

Our second ‘Meet Me’ of the day is from our very own Monday columnist Anna…

Book – Landmarks by Robert Macfarlane
Music – Dirty Gold by Angel Haze
TV – The Sopranos (missed it first time round, boxed set binging!)
Food – Homemade woodfired pizza – best invention EVER.
Pastime – Swimming

Most memorable piece of advice
Not really advice but a quote:

‘Who can live with his own truth? it is enough to know it is there, it is enough to know it at last and that it feeds a secret and silent fervour in the self in the face of death’ Albert Camus

When I look in the mirror I see…
…a familiar stranger

If I could travel anywhere in the world…
It would be West Wales-I love it. The sea and the mountains, what else is there?

What makes me laugh?
90’s comedians (mostly Stewart Lee & Richard Herring..) Charlie Brooker, Caitlin Moran, Bridget Christie, The Mighty Boosh, Blackadder, Bottom, The IT Crowd, Father Ted, my children and my friends i.e. most things!

What inspires me?
People, hope, nature and fear

Who inspires me?
My children & family, people who say what they mean and mean what they say.

Ideal support package?
Counselling (accessible from being told onwards) honesty, trauma informed models of working and a willingness (from the adult world) to talk about adoption.
