Living Etc - - HOMES / ETC -

When was the last time you cried? I al­ways cry when I’m watch­ing anyone win or lose any­thing. Sports day, the Olympics, it doesn’t mat­ter about the event – I’m guar­an­teed to have some tears.

What’s your favourite com­fort food? Roast beef with all the trimmings. I love a roast.

What one piece of ad­vice do you give your chil­dren? Seek progress not per­fec­tion.

Are you a laid-back or hands-on mum? Hands-on as­pir­ing to be laid-back.

Which work of art would you like to own? I’d love a piece by Swiss artist Miriam Cahn. They’re won­der­ful paint­ings, strongly po­lit­i­cal and fem­i­nist and, of course, fab colour! But I don’t have a wall or bud­get large enough.

Are you a frus­trated artist? Ab­so­lutely not. I can­not paint for tof­fee. I once did a draw­ing course and re­alised that draw­ing can be taught, but be­ing an artist can­not.
