Accomplishing that task you keep placing at the bottom of your to do list but also waking up in the morning to a beautiful blue sky, and the sun beaming…sorry I know that’s 2.

I enjoy swimming, Formula 1, running (only 5k!), cycling badly, and shopping (is that a hobby?)
What’s your favourite film and why?
Se7en…..My favourite genre of films are thrillers and I think Se7en is arguably one of the best made. The immersive storyline, gruesome plot twists, and exceptional cast make this film a true classic.
If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you take with you and why?
A bottle of Gin, a bottle of slimline tonic and a lime. Whilst none of the items would assist me being rescued, it would at least allow me to enjoy the experience!
