GailGail Adams is 45 years old and works as the practice administrator for a group of architects. She is married to Ian and is mother to three wonderful young people. Gail was also involved in the birth of mayBe community. How are you feeling at the moment? in the words of James Brown 'I feel good, so good' Lots of really positive things going on in my life at the moment - see me for the details! What are you reading / listening to / watching at the moment? I'm reading I'm not scared by Niccolo Ammaniti. I am listening to Radio 4 in the mornings at the moment with my daughters who are studying Government and Politics - they would much rather be listening to Chris Moyles and the sad thing is I miss Chris too! I'm watching the swans at work on my lunchtime walks who now have only two signets remaining from the six original offspring thanks to mr fox who has spotted their supper sized potential - how fragile life is... How do you describe mayBe to people? mayBe is a wonderful, playful, inspiring, vulnerable community trying to encourage the best and challenge the worst of what is going on inside each one of us in the light of Jesus Christ. However, words don't do it justice so I would encourage people to 'taste and see' What's good about mayBe? sharing my journey with the lovely mayBe people and the freedom to explore and deepen my spirituality What's not so good? making very large puddings for the lovely mayBe people (I love you really guys) - would really like to ditch the whole pudding thing but am experiencing true grit and resistance to the idea - so that's as bad as it gets at the moment Would you like to draw a self-portrait here? no, can't draw for toffee...
Gailwhat actor would you pick to play you in a film of your life? Caroline Quentin and her sense of humour hit the mark what song(s) would feature on the soundtrack long legs by Magic Numbers - my CD of the summer (Caroline Quentin can only be filmed from the waist up then!) I'd be lost without... the Adams family My favourite place in the world is... in bed - with tea, toast and a good book (sorry Ian) My favourite place in Oxford is... 33A home sweet home..... actually this interview is making it sound like I don't get out much so can I also mention Quod, the Jericho cafe, Georgina's, Port Meadow and down by the river My favourite smell is... a roast dinner being cooked by my wonderful mum ........is the new black... who cares? I used to be bothered but now I'm not bothered (do I look bothered) - liberation
