What's your favourite Gloucestershire day out?

A visit to the Forest of Dean, with my family and dog in tow. Being able to escape into the forest to wander and explore is brilliant.

And your favourite place to eat out in the county?

It really depends on who I am with. Having a young family, if we are out together then we like going to the Barn Owl pub in Kingsway, and the Angel Chef in Gloucester.

What's the worst job you've ever had?

A factory cleaner in an animal foods factory. This was a summer job and involved deep cleaning the factory.

Have you got any unusual habits?

II just hate being late for things. I much prefer to be an hour early rather then five minutes late.

Who is your hero and why?

I don't really have any heroes as such, however I have a number of people I admire. Three examples of these are Warren Buffett, Tim Berners-Lee and Jamie Oliver.

What book are you reading at the moment or tell us your favourite?

The Hornblower series by CS Forester.

What was the last film you watched?

The Iron Lady.

First single/record you ever bought?

Now 26 on CD.

Facebook or Twitter? (And what is your twitter handle/name?
