When I’m not lawyering, my favourite things to do include (in ascending order):

  • Playing board games (my family tell me I’m a bit competitive, just a bit)
  • Baking (also known as my ‘experiments’. You can take me out of the lab but you can’t take the lab out of me)
  • Eating food my husband cooks (we all think he’s secretly practising for Masterchef)
  • Singing and dancing with my one year old boy
