A fear of flying – Jess on the couch

Jessica Billington

Top Quote: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now” Johann Goethe – this quote was on my wall for my entire time at university, it has shaped my life

Would Get Out of Bed For: A hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows or a proper greasy fry-up....oooh or a glass of champagne – I’m a woman of varied tastes! However, I’m usually woken because my air supply is blocked – by the Pug sitting on my head

Dirty Secret: Eating 4 squares of Galaxy chocolate whilst in the shower – don’t judge me. Try it!

Hot Under the Collar: Waiting – for transport, for meetings or for hospital appointments – what a waste of life! Car parking rates and people who are dog snobs “oh I would NEVER have a handbag dog!” Grrrrr.....

Quintessentially Cornish: Born in Falmouth and still living here, I am as Cornish as they come! I don’t surf, don’t drink Betty Stoggs and don’t call everyone “me’ andscombe” but I go to the beach on a daily basis, still know that it’s breakfast, dinner and tea (what is this 'lunch’ rubbish) and am partial to a cream tea – every now and again! That’s right my lovers!

Writers Block: Run the romance blog Treat a Lady and freelance copywriter. Also a columnist for Business Cornwall writing for new business start-ups and entrepreneurs
