My Life - Gabrielle Thomas

Mother of three boys and Head of Sales and Events at Nutcracker Agency, Gabby is a no-nonsense, determined and hard working woman. She always has some positive and kind words of wisdom tucked away to encourage other women - especially working mums. Gabby talks to us about Christmas, motherhood and what happiness means to her. 

What is your morning ritual? Coffee... and strong coffee at that!

What time did you wake up this morning? 5am.

What does Christmas mean to you? It means happiness, fun, giving and family.

What excites you? Family fun time, holidays, my work and my friends.

What are you most scared of? Small spaces... I'm incredibly claustrophobic.

What book are you reading at the moment? I've just read Aliens Love Panta Claus - does that count???

What is your greatest regret? Not taking school seriously.

What have you learnt from your mum? Pretty much everything. She is an incredible role model and amazing mum to five children. She had a big career and could juggle priorities tremendously.

What is the quality that the people who know you admire the most about you? My positivity.

How do you unwind? I don't... really.

What piece of advice has worked for you as a working mum? Plan ahead, and be organised.

What is the best thing about being a mum to three boys? There are so many. The boys care about each other and look out for one another. They are loving and cuddly. Negativity doesn't stay around for long. An argument is gone as soon as it arrives.

What does motherhood mean to you? Unconditional love. The responsibility of bringing up my children in the best possible way to give them a great start in life.

What is the best gift you have ever received? Without doubt, my children.

If your life was a song, what would the title be? Blessed.

What is your favourite movie in the last last five years? Vacation - it was so funny, and therefore memorable. Hilarious!
