    The caption reads: “A fun fact that some of you might not know: Me and my husband Simon work together at @crafterscompuk (but don’t ask us which one is the boss! You’ll get a different answer depending on who you ask!)

    “We call him the master organiser and I'm the ideas person – organization is NOT my strong suit. We have hectic day-to-day lives, so we try not to get in each other's pockets, but we always make sure we have time for each other outside of work too.

    “Sometimes on an evening, we have to schedule a mini 'business' meeting where we'll go through our diaries for work and home life - what the kids have got coming up (how we’re going to juggle it all!) and anything important that we need to tell each other!”
