MY PER­FECT SUN­DAY

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - By Cerys Matthews

I wake up early and read. Some­one will bring me a cof­fee and my three chil­dren will play qui­etly.

I don’t like talk­ing to any­one first thing! I don’t eat break­fast so I’ll gather up my records and head off to BBC Wo­gan House.

Even on my per­fect Sun­day I’d still do my 10am 6mu­sic ra­dio show as I love play­ing all my favourite records and in­ter­view­ing in­ter­est­ing artists.

I come off air at mid­day starv­ing so I’ll go home and cook – veg­e­tar­ian with York­shire pud­dings and gravy and lots of roasted veg­eta­bles. The kids, my hus­band Steve and neigh­bours will gather round the big kitchen ta­ble to eat and talk. I’ll open a good bot­tle of wine, I’m into ries­ling.

Then Steve and I, maybe the two youngest, will go for a stroll along Por­to­bello Road. Hope­fully af­ter Steve has bathed and put the kids to bed, I’ll light a fire, get the guitar out and more friends will come over. I’ll then watch the news and by 11pm I’m back in bed with a book.

Cerys is the founder of The Good Life Ex­pe­ri­ence, a fes­ti­val of cul­ture and the great out­doors in Hawar­den, Flintshire from Septem­ber 15-17. Tick­ets at
