Kerry and Hilary

KODAK Digital Still Camera This month’s Skip Chicks are two of our very own. We were delighted when Kerry Voellner and  Hilary Mottram decided to put themselves up for the Skip Chick challenge. Take it away ladies…

 Well helloooooo ladies. How young are you both?

 KV: 36

HM: 32

And, what do you both do at Skip Hire Mag?

KV: Covering Editor

HM: Subscriptions Manager

And, how long have you both worked there?

KV: Only since April this year

HM: 11 Months

Aw so you’re still rookies then really. What’s the best part of your job?

KV: Working with the Skip Hire Team, no two days are the same

HM: Searching for the next top model, Skip Hunk/Chick

Sounds like great fun. Who is your favourite colleague, and why?

KV: Being the diplomatic person that I am, I have to say I luuurve them all equally

HM: I can’t possibly answer that, I need to keep my job, this momma has bills to pay!

Well, the cost of living is quite high, so we will let you off Hilary. What’s the worst part about your jobs?

KV: Trying to restrain myself from slapping Ric on his backside

HM: Sitting next to Ric, knowing I am not allowed to touch him due to a restraining order he has against me!

Blimey, are you sure you work in an office? Ric sounds like a super-stud! What type of thing do you get up to outside of work?

KV: I do Fudoshin-Ki (mixed martial arts), kettlebells and of course, I love spending time with family and friends and the odd cocktail, vodka, wine, prosecco, sambuca, tequila….

HM: Drinking and Bingo, its best when I do them both together, those old folk don’t like you messing when those balls are in play. I also entertain a very hyper six year old who refuses to take no for an answer

You sound like a right pair of busy little Skip Chicks! What are your favourite films?

KV: Has to be Goodfellas. I’ve watched it hundreds of times – it’s got the right mixture of period-history, gangsters and love – perfect!

HM: Love Actually. You can’t beat a feel-good movie with a Christmas theme, plus Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, what’s not to like?

Ooh yeah, they would both make very good Skip Hunks. What did you both want to be when you were growing up?

KV: A rock star. I wanted to be the female version of Axl Rose and make some seriously loud music!

HM: I wanted to be an Air Hostess (Glorified Trolley Dolly!), but I would get bored being stuck for all those hours on a tiny plane…. And don’t even get me started on the germ factor

Well you both seem like you live in Paradise City. If you were an animal, what would you be? And why?

KV: Definitely a tigress. Because I look sweet and innocent, but you wanna see me when I roooaaarrrrr!

HM: A Parrot, so I could fly round and be free, plus I could tell you if you were pecking my head and poop on you from a great height!

You two are like chalk and cheese. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself:

KV: I can’t sneeze properly – so when I do, it sounds like I’m screaming – much to the delight of my colleagues, who think it’s hilarious!

HM: I have webbed toes so I often get called “duck”

What a strange pair you are. Have some pepper and get your socks on! If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

KV: Erm, I already have it!

HM: A bed tester, I could seriously sleep 24 hours a day Zzzzzzzzzz

If you had to take one thing to a desert island what would it be?

KV: My phone – I literally sleep with it under my pillow

HM: A raft so I could get off the thing, there is no way I could live on a desert island it’s my idea of hell.

Can you both even remember life before the mobile phone? And that is some serious rafting Hilary! If you were Prime Minister, what one thing would you change?

KV: Everybody would have to be a Skip Chick or Skip Hunk at some point in their lives

HM: 2 days working week, 5 day weekend

Can’t argue with that. So many undiscovered Skip Gals and Guys yet to be discovered. Who would your dream Skip Hunks be?

KV: I already have my dream Skip Hunk, but at a push, it would have to be Batman (with his outfit on)!

HM: Is it wrong to say Cain Dingle?

Gotham or Emmerdale men, no similarities there then… If your dream Skip Hunks came round for tea, what would you cook?

KV: Cooking would be the last thing on my agenda if Batman came knocking!

HM: I wouldn’t be cooking anything, I would be drooling too much, its ok though I have Chinese on speed dial

Kerry, you should cook him dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner first before anything else happens on them Dark Knights! And Hilary, a little pad thai goes a long way. How will becoming Skip Chicks change your life?

KV: I will most definitely be the butt of jokes for a long time to come – but it’s worth it to show my mates down the pub and my mum will probably want to frame it!

HM: It won’t, I refuse to let fame go to my head
