  1. Marmite – love it or hate it? Hate it with a rather large passion…. it is so wrong
  2. Which three famous people or celebrities would you like to spend an evening at the pub with and why (or afternoon at a coffee shop if you’d prefer)? I’ll go for the pub thanks and I would spend it with David Tennant for his sexy accent, Billy Connolly for his craziness and Jennifer Connolly to quiz her about dancing with David Bowie in the Labyrinth
  3. What sort of cook are you? Do you follow recipes, throw things together or phone for takeaway? I love to cook, but have found it difficult since having my son in December… as my recipes were always complicated and time consuming. I am throwing together things a bit more nowadays and using the slow cooker alot!

  6. What is your dream holiday destination or activity? Backpacking through Nepal – we were going to go for our honeymoon later this year, but our son will be too little really 😦
  7. Tea or coffee? Tea, Tea, Tea… although when pregnant I was addicted to decaf lattes
