…a knife, a book, and a radio/music

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

P.E. and Art

I used to be afraid of heights but no longer.

What is the next skill you would like to learn?

I love cake decorating and would love to progress my skills in that.

Ellen MacArthur, the solo round the world sailor.

Where do you dream of visiting one day? 

I’ve been incredibly lucky to travel to loads of places.  I would like to return and spend more time in New Zealand and scuba dive there.
