Ticket office for a home design exhibition in Lima, Peru (CasaCor). As we were one of the exhibitors, we were free to do exactly what we wanted. Quite a change.

Seeing my daughter receive her GCSE results.

What is the greatest invention ever?

It’s difficult to choose from all the technological advancements, but I’m always amazed by all the things we can do with our mobile phones. My favourite part has been the good quality photos.
