  1. 3 things in your bucket list?
    I’ve never really had a bucket list and considering I got married, bought a house and became a Dad all in the space of 2 years, I feel pretty happy with my life. However if given the opportunity, I’d like to:
    Travel around the world!
    Have a house with country views and an outbuilding for guests
    Win a small fortune!

    Anything and everything. Life’s too short for serious topics so I’m happiest when I’m talking about a lot to do about nothing. I think I take after my Dad who could talk for England!
