Me myself my twin
On my previous blog I started to tell you a little about myself, my driving force for the business and my family. I count myself as being incredibly lucky as I have a very close family, my Mum Dad and Sister are my best friends. My sister is more than that she is my identical twin, my double, sometimes she drives me NUTS but I'm sure I do her too.
Above is one of my favourite pictures of us together when we were small, I think I love it because can really see our children in the photograph.
First day of school
My twin and I were very lucky. We both always new what we'd like to do when we grew up, I only ever remember Fiona saying she wanted to be a teacher as for me becoming a hairdresser was written in the stars, even on my first day of school. When asked by my teacher what I'd like to do. Because I was so upset I replied "put rollers in your hair".
In some ways my twin and I are very different, from our hobbies and interests to our taste in music, Fiona is very musical but I couldn't play a note on anything, I loved horses and rode into my 20s. Our school and further education were totally opposite too, Fiona studying A levels and going on to university becoming at teacher, I am so very proud of all she's achieved. Whilst I finished school at 16 starting in salon full time only days after my last GCSE into career I love never looking back. Completing NVQs level 2 and 3.
We do however share a love of reading and generally like the same authors and genres. We love dancing too.
People often ask me. "What's it like having a twin" my answer is "brilliant".
I don't have any other siblings so I can not compare but I wouldn't ever want it to be different, she is my BEST friend.
