On a Friday, could we feast? Well we could have, but now it's Saturday bed-time!

Name a trait you share with your parents or your children.
I am so much like both my mother and my father it is scary, this question should be "name a trait you don't share with your parents"! Like my mum ... I leave things to the last minute, thriving on a fast approaching deadline. Just like my dad ... I'd never dream of being sarcastic! It wouldn't even occur to me ;o)

List 3 qualities of a good leader, in your opinion.
Humility, a sense of humour and understanding/acceptance of the differing qualities of individuals!

Who is your favorite television chef?
Nigel Slater, not really a chef more of a food writer BUT he just makes food so bloody sexy and so much fun ... I could have orgasmed over his chip butty. I mean I got very excited over his excitement as he made ... oh never mind!

Main Course
Share a story about a gift you received from someone you love.
Simon and I had such a fantastic wedding day; the company of family and amazing friends, incredible food and cocktails galore truly made it a day to remember ... and then there was the speech that Simon was not going to make.

"That's fine" I said, "we just need to thank everyone for being here, thank Kev for cooking and thanks my parents for shopping*!" "No problem!" he said; but instead he said "thankyou for marrying me" and he gave me diamonds and whispered "forever!" Brought tears to my eyes!

How do you react under pressure?
Like my mum, I react well to pressure. In fact I don't react if everything is relaxed because I'm quite laid-back** about it all! Give me a deadline :o)

* For wine :o)
** Read horizontal

Lisa ~ I think those qualities are so important in anyone, leader, family or friend!

And Simon ... he's just a big old softy!
