Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a very active, outdoorsy person. I'm always out and about at
weekends, either hiking, horse-riding, cycling or doing
conservation work for the National Trust. During the week I go
running at lunchtime.
I'm a huge music fan (mainly indie/alternative), though I don't go
to quite as many gigs as I used to and these days I mostly listen
to audio books, as well as science and current affairs podcasts. I
haven't got a science background but I love learning new things and
I like to know what's going on in the world. Last year I completed
an online physics course (for fun) and I've been brushing up on my
French. I'm a bit of a nerd.
Other things that keep me busy are drumming - I'm a member of an
all-female African drumming group -, tai chi and yoga. But I also
spend a lot of time reading and I always welcome a bit of peace and
I've got a 30-year-old New Forest pony, whom I've owned since I was
10. I am vaguely vegan (I can't resist chocolate and cake) and I
care about the environment and animal welfare.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The great outdoors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I should move to the other end of the country... or go
travelling... or go back to university... or take a year out to
write a book... too many options to choose from!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Resting my creaking bones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
