“I’m quite a plain Jane with bleached hair.”

Wendy 50 from London. Married with two grown up children and one grandchild. She works as a cleaner.

What are your dreams?

To live by the sea. It’s so calming and relaxing, everything nowadays is so fast paced. No one seems to relax, everyone wants to make money, it’s the forefront of everything.  I would really love to go on a quiz show too. Quizzes inspire me, they get my brain going, they inspire me to learn more.

How do you see yourself?

I’m quite a plain person, I’m not stunningly beautiful but I’m not ugly either, I’m quite a plain Jane with bleached hair. I’m over weight and short, just average nothing special or anything. I'm a giving person. I’m not passionate or romantic in anyway, I’m quite shy really especially when it comes to meeting new people. 

How do you express yourself?

I do moan! I like to get things off my chest. I dance, especially when I’m on my own at home. Me and my Husband dance together at the weekend. Sometimes we chase each other around the house screaming and giggling - we’re quite childlike. I hide when he comes home from work and jump out and scare him.  

Who or what inspires you?

I love the smell of lavender but it's my grandchildren that inspire me, they're so young and innocent.

What does life mean to you?

It’s quite miserable really, there’s high points and low points but the majority of the time is quite dull. Sometimes I don’t enjoy life so much, it’s repetitive and boring. I like to be busy. I hate being stuck in the house. Sometimes I just want to get out of here. I’m quite a nervous person and have a fear of what I would do if someone attacked me.

What have you taken from today?

I’m glad I did it. I cried a lot. I realise I cry at everything - I’m so emotional. I didn't realise I saw the world as badly as I do. It’s just how I feel at the moment.
