Welcome to the club!
My name is Nadine and I live in Lavant, just outside Chichester, with my husband, one daughter and Archie the cat. I’ve been married to Eugene for 30 years and we have four amazing children – Bethany who is 29, lives and works in London; Maisie is 27 and lives with us and works locally; Holly is 25 and lives in Bristol with her boyfriend; Zachary is 23 and lives in Ormskirk, near Liverpool, where he works as chef.
Eugene and I met in the United Arab Emirates when we were teenagers (our families lived there) and came back to England in 1989 to marry. As a married couple we’ve always lived in the Chichester area and our children grew up here.
I was in the main, a stay-at-home mum, but started working for Checkatrade in 2003. I became the PA to the MD and Founder and had a great time socialising with my colleagues and making long and lasting friendships (and working hard obviously, but we did love a party!). I left the company in 2019, about a year after it had been sold. Once I had left I didn’t really know what to do. I felt that I couldn’t work behind a desk again and that I wanted to be involved with people. As a PA, my two favourite things to do were to organise events and spend time with people so I needed something that was going to tick those boxes. I was also becoming increasingly frustrated that there weren't enough places or events for people like me, where I could hang out with old friends, make new friends and have new experiences, but I didn't really know what to do about it. It wasn’t until earlier this year, February 2020, when I finally came across something that excited me - Live Laugh Love Ladies Clubs.
It’s unfortunate I started just when the whole country is confined to their homes, but I’m excited by the online presence we are offering you lovely ladies, and how much time do we have to come up with some amazing things for the future, once we are allowed out again? A lot!
I’m looking forward to meeting you online and eventually in person, as soon as I’ve managed to find a venue for us!
