How do you relax?

Cuddling up in front of the fire with a good movie or TV series.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?

Some sort of teleportation machine to take me to and from Belfast every day so I didn’t have to spend so long on the train.

Where would you most like to be right now?

On a beach somewhere hot or having a pub lunch in Carlingford followed by a walk along the water with our dogs.

Lovely .
