LincsGeek and Me at Graduation

What is the best book you have read recently?

Victoria Pendleton – Between the Lines: My Autobiography. Such pain. Such stubbornness. Such achievement.

What is the best gift you have ever received?

I have been very lucky and received lots of amazing gifts. I could not tell you which one was best. 

If you could take any three well known people on a road trip, who would it be and where would you go?

I’d hook up with Adam, Jamie and Kari from Mythbusters and we’d head to MIT to blow something up!

if you could live in any other decade, which would you choose?

Possibly the 20s. Or the 50s. I’d need different hair though, no way mine would perm!

What advice would you give your 14 yr old self?

Choose something! Stop doing everything and choose one or maybe two things. Concentrate. Decide between music and sport. 

What is your very favourite chocolate bar?

If you mean from the choice of bars found at the end of the supermarket checkout, then a Twirl. Apart from that it’s Green and Blacks Vanilla every time!

What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

Right now? Spotty. Tired. Lethargic. I seriously need to change this!

What is your favourite quote??

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. A A Milne (Winnie the Pooh)

What’s your favourite breakfast?

Smoked salmon and scrambled egg on an English muffin. Oh yes.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?


What do you do to relax?

I take a bath. Or sit and watch television. Or one after the other.

What song is guaranteed to make you dance?

I don’t dance. I can’t.

If you could excel at and enjoy any sport, which would you choose?

Track cycling. I’ve always wanted to give it a try.

Day off = DVD, sofa and food or up, out and active?

Depends on what I feel like. Sometimes I’ll do nothing. Sometimes I’ll take myself out for a long walk. I enjoy both.

Topical one today – favourite pancake topping?

Easy. Maple syrup.

Chocolate Chip Pancake with Maple Syrup

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

There are so many injustices in the world. I think I would start with hunger. 

If you were to be marooned on a desert island, what five things would you take?

Five things is harder than one. Ok. A knife, some rope, chocolate, water and sun block.

What is your favourite flower?



What are you currently really enjoying?

The first signs that Spring is on its way.
