Big thank you from

Debbie Pielou

Debbie PielouDEBBIE Pielou, 27, from Lisburn, a new mum has been busy setting up and growing 'Healthy Practice, Holistic Therapies'. She works on a wide variety of people using reflexology, reiki, hopi ear candling and Indian Head massage- She really enjoys spending time in her treatment room and says her work is very rewarding.

What do you like doing on your day off?
Having a lie in if possible. Then making a good breakfast and sitting down in front of the telly to catch up on shows I've missed during the week. If the weather is good, it's great to head out shopping or to the park with the buggy.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
I'd have to say pizza cooked by a guy in Venice who had a 'pizza making degree' or so he said anyway. The pizza was awesome and you could walk about town with a glass of wine and pizza till the early hours.

What has been your proudest moment?
Seeing my son for the first time.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
I was in a car accident a few years ago.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Unusual or vintage clothes catch my eye, but I've got a wardrobe of all sorts that I mix and match depending on what I'm doing. At the minute I rely on my trainers and jeans a lot.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Go on holiday, one of those round the world trips would be nice. For holidays at home, a place near Enniskillen would be lovely. I'd have to get huge premises for Healthy Practice as well.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Realising after I had been arguing with someone at the reception desk for ages about why they wouldn't let me check in, that I'd taken a taxi to the wrong hotel. I was across the water for a job interview and went to the Holiday Inn instead of the Holiday Inn Express beside Heathrow. I left the desk but had to re-join the queue of giggling people because my mobile needed charged and I had to ask the person at reception to call me another taxi.

What music do you like?
A bit of everything from Elbow to Queens of the Stone Age.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
Apart from my honeymoon, my best ever holiday was to the Grand Canyon. My dream holiday would be a round the world trip, ending up in Australia for a longer stay.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To do something big for charity like walking the great wall of China. I would also like to overcome my fear of scubadiving.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Robin Williams

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
A free mojito vending machine, a hammock and The Beach Boys band playing live.
