If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
I’d love to be able to fix anything that broke in my house. How handy would that be??
What do you do to unwind?
Most definitely reading — I have to do it every night before I go to sleep to properly relax.
What’s your favourite board game?
Not a game, but I love doing puzzles — especially jigsaws and logic ones, but really any kind.
What’s your speciality in the kitchen?
I love cooking and I am a crack at opening the fridge and making something out of what’s in there.
