Hi! My name is Sophie Spittle; I am 21 and currently studying Midwifery at Anglia Ruskin. I live with my partner Steve in a little one-bedroom coach-house in a town called Haverhill. We met whilst studying for our previous degrees in London and have been together ever since. He is currently studying for a PGCE in Primary Teaching so it’s baked beans and noodles for us for a few years. With the good times come the bad but we wouldn’t change it for anything.
