Dreamland. If my imagination is anything to go by, it’s a magical endless place with swirls of deep blue and green.

Anything and everything to do with cars, numbers and patience.

My mother – Beverley Dolley.

Pass – games give me anxiety.

To speak every known (maybe also unknown?) language.

My four grandparents and my dad’s uncle John.

This depends on my mood.

Something involving painting, music, reading and writing all rolled into one.

The company of my family and friends. And also, retrospectively, the solitude and thinking time lockdown provided.
