Going home to the Lake District – Wastwater and a few Herdwick sheep puts everything in perspective

A bit of both; I love the countryside, but I still get excited by red buses, black taxis, and that promising smell of London on a warm summer night

Sweet

Rugby. Although if you’d asked me during the Olympics I would have insisted it was dressage/cycling/archery, etc.

I love driving – I’m a closet car freak – and adore a long road trip with a stack of good music, and a winding route ahead.

 

Would you rather read the book or watch the film first?

Night out. I think anyone who works mainly from home would go for a night out!

Life After Life, by Kate Atkinson, and The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
