Cats or dogs? Dogs all the way! Although I didn't get one until the age of 46, Bruno the cockerpoo is now the centre of the universe.

Time travel or invisibility? It has to be time travel. On so many occasions I have wistfully wondered what it would be like to live in the 30s, 40s, 50s - I love the fashion and style, but then Women's Rights wasn't great... tricky...

Favourite item you’ve bought this year? A Woolrich parka coat and a pair of beautiful Hestra red leather gloves; buying stand-the-test of time brands gives me great pleasure, second hand of course!
