A Quick Chat With: Kirsty Gallacher
'People shouldn’t be allowed pets if they can’t look after them'
Thursday 08 July 2010

If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be... picking my son Oscar up from nursery.
A phrase I use far too often is... ‘I’m tired’. As a working mum, it’s really hard to find time in the day to just relax and take a break. I am constantly on the go.
I wish people would take more notice of... cruelty to animals. I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it.
A common misperception of me is... that I am much taller than I actually am. I am 5 ft 5 which is a pretty average height!
I'm not a politician but... as a parent, it worries me that there is so much information available on the internet. I would try and put bigger restrictions on certain websites.
I'm good at... art. I have always enjoyed drawing and painting but I don’t always find the time to do much these days.
But I'm very bad at... all things to do with the computer. My children will definitely be catching me up soon!
The ideal night out is... going to a lovely restaurant with good food, friends and family.
In moments of weakness I... have a cup of English Breakfast Tea. It always makes everything feel better.
My views on Facebook and Twitter are… negative. I am not a fan of Facebook or Twitter. They both allow too much information to be available and they make privacy a thing of the past.
In a truer life I'd have been... an expert in a certain field. I have always enjoyed history so maybe an expert in a particular era or period of time would have been good!
The best age to be is... the age I am now- over 30! You no longer have to strive to fit in or be something that you’re not. I think once you are over 30 people accept the way they are and actually start to enjoy life
In a nutshell, my philosophy is... live life to the full, make the most of every day and don’t waste time worrying!
