love to read, my days often end relaxing with a good book. I am always trying to raise money for worthy causes such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK via Pampered Chef fundraising shows. I consider my Pampered Chef role more of a hobby than a job, and thoroughly enjoy giving shows in people’s homes, workplaces, community centres, etc. I try to get involved with the PTA at my daughters school as much as my schedule allows, I think it’s important to support the PTA as they provide so much assistance and funding to the school.
