Who Is Funky Wellies?

Katia - Author - Freelance Writer - Funky Wellies

Hello and welcome!

I am Katia, aka Funky Wellies, enjoying life in my adoptive country.

Married to Sexy Hubby, I have two amazing daughters and a Mediterranean temper…
I am passionate about many, many things, including but not limited to:

  • Writing: Rather stating the obvious here?
  • Reading (in French, English and, still slower but practicing, in German): A pile of books around the bed is a permanent feature in our bedroom and the bookshelves are creaking under the load. It does not stop me from buying more, though. I cannot help it.
  • Travelling: Discovering new countries and cities, coming across different cultures and tasting unknown food… Looks like I have passed the bug onto my daughters.
  • Dressing up: I do love a fabulous, sexy outfit. A dress and high heels if I choose. Jeans and cowgirl boots if Sexy Hubby chooses. I like both, though.
  • Laughing with family and friends: If you are not half chocking and crying, you are not laughing hard enough…
  • Italian cars: With a strong preference for Ferraris. I am currently driving a fabulous Fiat 500 convertible.
  • Gastronomy: I cannot resist, life is too short.
  • Chocolate and good wines: See above.
  • Sport: For the endorphin high and keeping in shape while still eating everything I like!
  • Wellness: I simply cannot survive through the winter without regular trips to the sauna and the hamam. I am quite partial to massages too.
  • The music of Bon Jovi: If you pay my Entertainment page a visit you will understand.
  • Being silly: Running around the home singing – or rather shouting – the theme of the
    Batman 60’s series draped in blankets capes and my dead frog impression are prime
  • Trying to overcome a phobia of frogs and toads: Loooong story going back to my
    childhood. Still working on it.
  • Surprising my loved ones in many little and big ways: It does not take much to make someone you love smile. A note stuck on the bathroom mirror can do just that.

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate it! 🙂

    OMG I want to be you! I am so jealous! Your life looks like mine BC – how do you maintain that with 2 of them???? Also on the back foot a bit as writing should have been my career, but I’ve only just realised – still, never too late!

      Believe me, it took me a LONG time to get there… You will too, I am sure. Kids grow up, and then it gets easier (most of the time!). Thank you for your lovely comment. 🙂

    I always admire someone who actually writes for a living! I am making it my goal to get more paid copywriting work this year….not sure where to start though!
