Meet the story teller and characters

Hello, thanks for stopping by to find out a bit more about Sofa Stories and the lives you will be reading the stories of.

Firstly there was Suz & Nic, best friends since 2000. You may know us from the days we ran award-winning events and blogging company Daisy Green Magazine, launched back in 2008. 1000’s of articles and a whole lot of lessons later, Daisy Green closed its editorial doors in 2015. The decision was hard but right (but who knows, DG may be resurrected at some part as she was a big part of the two of us).

With a new mandate and mantra, to ‘blog and have fun’, Sofa Stories was the result of a chat (on a very nice Chesterfield). This blog was to ensure we make time to create new memories together, visit wonderful places, review fabulous products and share our thoughts as stories.

What we realised though is that we don’t actually need a blog to cement us. We, as two strong women love each other and embrace our similarities and differences and as such Nicola has developed her own fabulous blog as part of MINT Business Club and I (Suzanne) will be continuing telling tales as I have always loved to. As one of my favourite heroines, I’m sure I will be adding Nicola to the plot time and time again though.

Here’s a little about your narrator and main characters

The narrator: Suzanne/Suz NEVER Susan! 

I’m me. Suzanne first, then all of my titles come a close second (mummy, partner, daughter, auntie, best friend). 5’4″ (164cm) and a size 5 (38) shoe – two stats that won’t change unless I shrink I guess.

I have two beautiful children, Emily (born March 2010) and Luke (born July 2015). I live with Richard, my long-suffering partner and my fav drinking and travelling buddy.

In late 2015, I was included in the #NETwitterati as one of the most influential Tourism Tweeters in the North East (I know six years has passed but it’s gone in a flash).

In my other life, I am an Environment, Health and Safety advisor and a true geek at heart.

The main characters


He’s often talked about in posts but is the quieter one of the two of us. He loves to travel even more than I if that’s possible. He’s a great daddy. He loves his mam and really cares about his family.

Emily Elizabeth Boobop (I will be told off if I leave off Boobop)

Eleven going on 16. She is a shining light who really doesn’t like the limelight but I am very lucky that I get to see her secret precocious side.

When she grows up she wants to be a wedding dress/clothes designer and a pub owner too.

Luke William – Mr. Fox and Mr. Moo Moo

Five and into everything. He has the palest of skin and blue eyes just like his sister.

When he grows up he wants to be kung foo police man.

Throughout blogging, we have been lucky enough to receive what some people refer to as a ‘freebie’! This is both a blessing and a curse but nevertheless something we love.

We will mark gifted items with an asterisk (*) but would like to assure our readers that we would never feature an item that we didn’t truly love unless it’s so bad that you the reader really needs to be warned about it.
