What do you like to do outside work?

I use my commute to listen to podcasts such as The Infinite Monkey Cage with Brian Cox, as I would like to understand a bit more about science.

In my evenings I am working on my Italian language skills. I would also like to start learning some further languages when I get more time.

I love DIY and I am very proud of my toolkit, mainly consisting of power tools which I try to use for even the smallest job. I recently built my own dining room table.

I enjoy baking and recently won a prize for my rainbow cake.

I am a member of Borrow my Doggy; as I cannot have a dog of my own in my house, I help other people in my area with theirs when they aren’t able to walk them or watch them on their own.
