Introducing our Organiser Tanya
Where do you run Markets?
Eastleigh, Romsey, Chandlers Ford, Totton, Applemore and Brockenhurst
What is the item you can’t live without other than your family?
My Phone! I know sad right but it keeps me up to date with work, the world and the kids happy when needed!
How many children do you have?
2, a 12 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. I can not believe that I will soon have a teenager in the house!
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why?
I would like to be an Orca, free in the ocean surrounded by so many animals but big enough that I am not going to get eaten in the first week!
Where is your favourite place to be and why?
I love South Wales, would move there tomorrow if I could but kids not so keen on leaving friends and family.
What is your favourite children’s book? I was a massive Enid Blyton fan and loved her Naughtiest Girl in the School series. I can not wait for my daughter to enjoy reading and buy them all so I have a sneaky read too. Now I enjoy getting into a Patricia Cornwall book.
Cinema or fancy restaurant?
Cinema is a luxury for me definitely and something that I should do more often. My daughter is not a fan, so makes it harder to go.
Which one spring, summer, autumn, or winter, let us know why?
Tough call there is something about every season that I love, the flowers in spring, the warmth in summer (well maybe not always in the UK!), the leaves changed colour in autumn and the kids faces waiting for a white Christmas in Winter.
Name one thing you always carry in your handbag?
Epi Pen, something that has to be with me at all times due to allergies I have gained following my last pregnancy.
One bit of information you wish you’d known before becoming a parent?
That the feeling of being a mum is the best in the world, I would have done it sooner! Having kids changes your whole world and sometimes you do not know how you will get through the next hour or even day, then you realise how lucky and privileged you are to be given a child or my case 2.
Best bargain you have found at a Little Pickles Market?
At Little Pickles it would have to be Monsoon dresses for £1 each which were so beautiful and at Bigger Pickles just recently it was a box of Barbies and clothes for £3 which my daughter has already played with every day for the last 3 weeks.
