My typ­i­cal week…

I wake up at 4am ev­ery day with a wake-up light (aka my daily sav­ing grace). It’s way less jar­ring than the alarm on my phone which now rarely goes off. I’m at work by 5, get­ting across news and prep­ping the show with Toni and Sam, and our pro­duc­ers. We’re on air at 6 and then it’s all go un­til 9am. I can usu­ally be out of work be­fore lunch, which gives me time for the gym, yoga or a walk some­where. I need bal­ance so I al­ways try to get some non-work re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties into ev­ery day like read­ing, drama prac­tice, or tak­ing the dogs to the beach. I’ve also per­fected the 20-minute power nap. My hus­band Luke is a film edi­tor and of­ten works from home, so de­pend­ing on his sched­ule, we can ac­tu­ally spend a good amount of time to­gether dur­ing the week. I tend to use rainy af­ter­noons as an ex­cuse to hide in­side and watch a movie or TV show – I’ve just started watch­ing the new se­ries A Hand­maid’s

Tale. It’s eerily bril­liant! I ab­so­lutely love travel, and while I don’t travel all that much for work at the mo­ment, I love re­search­ing a trip some­where fun – you al­ways need a good hol­i­day to look for­ward to.

The three things I’d take with me to a desert is­land are…

My hus­band (does he count as a thing in this sce­nario?), my Akubra hat (sun smarts), and some comfy pants.

The per­son I’d cast in a movie of my life would be…

Drew Bar­ry­more, be­cause… we look vaguely sim­i­lar and she’d nail the awk­ward goof thing pretty well. It would also make it much eas­ier for me to raid her wardrobe.
