When not at work

Once upon time Angela enjoyed travelling to exotic climes such as Cambodia, Vietnam, Russia, Costa Rica and trying any thrill seeking activity she could.  However since having children, Angela now runs around like a headless chicken trying to fit all her household chores in to the little spare time she has available, playing with her children, and looking forward to the day they leave home when she will resume her previous pastimes of fine dining and a good bottle of wine...savoured, in peace and quiet.
