What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? 

My dad always joked when I was little: ‘If at first you don’t succeed – cheat!’. To my dad’s dismay I took that to mean you should find a lateral way around a problem, think outside the box and apply a new perspective to any bumps that come in life. I think this one piece of advice accidentally set me in very good stead for my adult life.  

What fictional world or place would you like to visit? 

Narnia hands down. So you’re telling me I can have a picnic next to a forest brook that has been untouched by human pollution, with talking animals for friends? Sign me up!
