Personal Profile

The way in which I spend my free time is influenced to a large extent by the social activities and school fixtures of my two children. We all enjoy skiing and also like to get away for family holidays in Scotland and South Africa - hill walking and bird watching (in good weather!). I like to discover good food and wine. Consequently, I look forward to spending more time in my local gym this year!.
