What was the best birthday present you ever received, and why?

My first set of wheels, a little blue bike that my father made, with a bell - mobile at last!

What smell do you find irresistible?

I love the smell of old fashioned Christmas lilies and daphne. They remind me of my mother, who passed when I was 19.

What is your least favourite thing about humanity?

My hope for humanity is that people will occasionally stop and think about what it's like to be in the other person's shoes, before they pass judgement or criticise.

What's something only your family knows about you?

Being the youngest of six children, I'm sure my brothers and sisters have plenty of stories they would like to share; but I am sure they would all say that I was the "spoilt'' one. Of course, this wasn't true!

You are a new addition to the crayon box. What colour are you, and why?

Autumnal yellow. I love autumn and the changing of colours.
