Favourite album: Amy Winehouse, Back to Black. Never a bad time to listen to it.
Film: The Italian Job (original)
Book: At the moment, the Harry Potter series. They are truly motivating my son to read.
TV programme: The Sopranos - just sublime.
Magazine: Occasionally I'll buy a cycling title.
Holiday destination: I learned to love the non-Costas Spain when I was living there.
Pet: Never had one, but it looks like we are going to get frogs this spring for our empty frog tank!
Hero: No real 'heroes' but I do think Barack Obama has made an awe-inspiring journey.
Way to spend the weekend: Trying to steal as much rest as possible in between the endless arrangements for kids and family.
Game/toy: I play ultimate frisbee - a bit like football but played with a flying disc. (and no, no dogs)
Tipple: Good malt whiskey doesn't go amiss.
Food: Love Indian, the spicier the better. Re-'discovered' vindaloo at Nuremburg this year.
