Little weaknesses

  • Cooking, I really enjoy cooking for others and tend to be a natural (or so I hear) 
  • Somewhere warm and quiet!  My special place currently is Italy. I love their way of life and food is out of this world.  I could see myself retiring in Venice or Florence one day 
  • I love DIY and fixing things that are broken. Not normally grant programmes, but cars, electrical equipment, dishwashers, washing machines, etc
