I like challenges but equally enjoy a slower pace at times - seeing the first May blossom, walking at low tide ... using public transport.
I’m fairly grounded and don’t get too troubled by the rough and tumble of life.
I always have a book on the go. It's hard to select a few favourites but A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry is definitely one. I'm reading The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell at the moment. And yes, I have read Fifty Shades of Grey.... well, they didn't have David Mitchell's Thousand Autumns at Heathrow (which I needed for my book club) so what else could I do?
Food - I eat pretty much anything. I like cooking for others but I too often go for speedy options when on my own. My top choice out would be mezes - Greek, Turkish, Lebanese... all delicious.
I keep fit by going to the gym (dull as it is), yoga, pilates and walking.
