Lazy breakfast with family followed by a long walk. Then meeting with friends in a pub, late afternoon, for bloody marys and chips before heading home to watch a film with my kids. I am getting into running so maybe fitting a run in at some point…

Either the circular yellow tower of flats next to the Tate Modern or San Francisco.

What’s the first thing you check out when visiting someone’s home for the first time?
Their photos… I’m very nosey!

Anything that makes me smile; large yellow jug, orange flokati rug, Bialetti coffee pot.

What makes you really angry?
People who don’t move down the tube carriage when it’s busy.

Pick a favourite film, book and song.
Favourite film Singing in the rain
Favourite Book Jane Eyre or anything by Isabelle Allende or Kate Atkinson
Favourite song – I have lots and constantly try to collate my desert island discs… Groove is

San Francisco and Berlin

Bergamote from Le Labo and sun tan lotion on my kids.

What single thing would improve your life?
More hours in the day and the ability to teleport!

Skateboarding and learning languages.

What would be your Death Row meal?
A weird combination… A Negroni followed by Thai green curry and lemon tart
