      I go to the gym and do weightlifting, go to a heels dance class, and play video games.
      On weekends I go out to gigs and clubs and dance around to metal, emo and goth music. I like almost anywhere that plays music different to the norm.

      I read a lot… I’m a bit of a SF addict and am continually expanding my library of SF books. I read Dune when I was in my first year at high school. I often listen to music when reading… mainly progressive rock… Pink Floyd, ELP, Mogwai and others. But sometimes when I’m relaxing I think about problems I need to solve at work.

      In my spare time I like to walk my dog but I have also recently got into the sport of Archery! At university there are lots of opportunities to try new sports and join clubs and societies. In the second year of my degree, I joined the archery club and I had the opportunity to go to four competitions to represent my team! I did not win but I did come 17th 🏹😂

      …quick answer, less than I used to! I still love live music, though, and try to see new bands if I can. I also like cooking: I find it very soothing to follow a recipe and produce something that is finished and ready to eat at the end of an hour or so! Unlike the looooooonnnnnnngg time it can take to plan, collect, analyse and publish my work…

      Right now I don’t have much spare time – but that’s because I have two small kids! When I’m not working or parenting, I love juggling, and I also love making things. I’m really into sewing at the moment. I spent a long time doing jewellery making (mostly using everyday objects like paperclips), which then was a real benefit when I took one science job where I had to make small fiddly sensors with wire!

      Cooking – I love cooking curries and southern fried chicken – not together obviously, that would be weird..
      I also play games, read a book, walk the dog and do archery.

      I mainly go to the gym and I also attend an outdoor fitness class. Some weekends I compete at sport events (running or other sports). Oh! And I am also studying to be a Personal Trainer

      I do rock climbing and sing with or conduct choirs. I also judge singing competitions!

      All sorts of things! I like to go hiking and cycling (which look a little different for me because I use a wheelchair), write, read, walk or play with my dog, go canoeing or camping (in the summer), or play games (I like board games and video games).
