Q: Are you a plastic or are you a cash person?

A: I'm very much a plastic person.

Q: How much money would you usually carry around with you?

A: Usually none.

Q: Do you see personal debt (ie, credit cards or personal loans) as inevitable or something best avoided?

A: It can be avoided. I think the key is money and lifestyle management.

Q: Apart from a house or car, what's the most expensive thing you've ever bought?

A: I don't tend to buy myself expensive things.

Q: What are your best - and worst - spending habits?

A: I think my best and worst spending habit is the same thing - I want to get the best value for money. I spend days or even weeks researching prices before I take the plunge.

Q: Did you get pocket money as a child and, if so, what was the first sum you received in pocket money?

A: I would have got 50p on a Friday.

Q: Did you have a part-time job as a youngster? If so, what was it and what were you paid?

A: Yes, from 13 years old, I used to work in a local hairdressers on a Saturday and get paid around £10.

Q: If you had a huge fortune, would you leave it to your children?

A: No, I don't think I would. I have seen many people's lives ruined by getting everything they want for nothing.

Q: Where do you do your food shopping?

A:I'm a very lucky lady, my husband does all the food shopping. I do love M&S though.

Q: Did the recession teach you anything about personal finances that you're bringing into the recovery?

A:I'm strict with my money, so I didn't really notice a big difference in my finances.
