Q – What would you do if you won the lottery?  build a house by the sea and spend the rest of my days cycling and drinking, although not necessarily at the same time. 

Q – What’s your perfect Sunday? in no particular order – sun, cycling, dog walking, pub lunch, sport (on TV) all with family and/or friends. Preferably friends as you can’t pick family. 

Q – If you could have any super power, what would it be?  Not sure if this would be classed as a super power but i’d have to plump for the Jedi power of being able to move objects with my (tiny) mind. This would generally be deployed on a Sunday to save moving from the sofa to make tea, visit the biscuit barrel and locating the remote control you’ve inevitably left in another room of the house.
