Team WIRW: Linda

We are like a little family here so wanted to let you know who everyone is and what they do at What I Really Wanted.

So we asked everyone to answer a few questions. Some answers are quite interesting…

Introducing Linda who looks after the overall business management and future planning:


What did you want to be growing up?

I wanted to be a secretary, wear glamorous clothes and have long painted nails. I spent many an hour perfecting the art of writing out receipts using the old fashioned carbon duplicate books! I also wanted to be a nurse, a teacher or a Mum.

What would you love to be doing?
Right now the sun is shining so I’d like to be swimming in a warmish sea or on a boat!

How would your partner describe you?
I asked him this morning and put him on the spot.  He started with adorable (good) but swiftly moved to impossible (probably more realistic)  Just a typical marriage then!

What ‘subtle hints’ will you be dropping to your partner, for your next birthday?
Definitely an experience that I can share with family or friends.  I love the dairy free menu at Indigo Restaurant, One Aldwych, so will definitely be dropping some hints.

What is the best present you have ever received and why?Linda-Bike
My friend organised a weekend away in the Aran Islands (off the coast of Ireland) so we had all the excitement of looking forward to it, all the fun of being there and all the memories of shenanigans and cycling.

What is the best present you have ever given; to who and why?
That’s a difficult one – but probably Rugby World Cup tickets for my Husband. He was delighted – it ticked all the boxes –  a day out with his friend, watching his favourite sport. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do anything about the result.

Who is the easiest person to buy for, and why?
Probably my sons – they always seem to be saving for something!

Who is the hardest person to buy for, and why?
My friend who has her own unique style so it’s really difficult to buy “things”.  I would imagine that many of the previous presents I’ve given her have been re-gifted or donated to charity!

We’re with Linda that it can be really difficult to buy ‘things’ for someone, especially when when their style and tastes are so different to your own. Experiences are great for everyone, but especially people that are hard to buy for.

Look out for the next one…Stephanie!
