"And then I'll have treats 20 per cent of the time – I'll have that slice of pizza, chocolate or a G&T to celebrate a friend's birthday. I'll do it because I know that for most of the week, I've been doing the good bits for my heart."

"Hampton Court has such a special energy! The people are wonderful, the boutiques and restaurants are so unique and whilst the tourists rightfully adore visiting, I generally feel like the local people really look after each other. Maybe that's why wherever I've gone, the area has always called me back for over the last 20 odd years. It feels like home and people look out for me.

"A palace with such a history by the water and swans floating by takes some beating. I'd love to get a little boat for the summer and have picnics! Ooo sunshine to look forward to - now there's a nice thought whilst being blown all over the place!"
