Big thank you from


AUDREY BurneyAUDREY Burney, 38 from Richhill, opened Envy Shoe Boutique in Railway Street just over two years ago because of her love for shoes. She says she tries to buy stock to suit her customers as they like comfort as well as style.

Audrey suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and has problems with her feet and can't wear high heels, so being able to choose all the lovely shoes is the next best thing for her.

What do you like doing on your day off?
As I am very busy with the shop I tend to use my day off to catch up on the housework and washing.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
My favourite meal would have to be steak in the Monasterboyce Inn in the South of Ireland. My husband and I always call there when returning from Dublin.

What has been your proudest moment?
My wedding day last year.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
When my cat Sherlock went missing for four days. I put an advert in the local paper for his safe return and he turned up on the day the paper was published.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
I love clothes and like to dress trendy. I like to dress up my outfits with costume jeweIlery, handbags and shoes.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Buy a villa in Spain and treat all my family and friends.

What music do you like?
All chart music.

What sports person do you most admire?
Lewis Hamilton.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
My best ever holiday was on a Mediterranean cruise last year but I would love to go to Africa on a safari, maybe some day.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
My greatest remaining ambition would be to make a success of the business as I would like to remain open in Lisburn for a very long time as it is a great wee town and the people are lovely.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Robbie Williams because he is seriously fit.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
Any true crime book, my husband Derrick and my beautiful cat Sherlock.
