Favourite song and favourite film
My all time favourite song Life on Mars by David Bowie. My favourite film to watch is Mamma Mia! – the ultimate feel good musical!
Favourite Dog Walk
There are some gorgeous meadows near my house that further convince me of my need for a canine companion every time I visit!
What other interests do you have outside of work?
I regularly attend sessions with a dance school in Manchester. I enjoy a trip to the pub to catch up with old friends but am very happy to cozy up with a hot chocolate and a good film.
