Favourite pitstop?

Bruma beach lounge bar in Cabrera de Mar. Or when it closes down for winter, BeWater in the nearby Club Náutico.

Mountains or beach?

I have to have my fix of both, although I’m only interested in mountains if they are covered in snow. If forced to choose between living close to one or the other, the sea definitely gets the nod.

Eat in or Eat out?

I love cooking but rarely have the time – so out.

Diet or exercise?

As far as I’m concerned exercise has to involve a ball (preferably oval shaped), a bat or a racket. Running bores me to death and gyms are for people with too much time on their hands. If I can’t get my fix of ball sports I’ll just skip lunch. Is that a diet?

Facebook or phone?

Presumably the advantage of smartphones is that you don’t have to choose?

Reading books or watching TV?

I’m a terrible reader. Don’t ask me about books. TV every time.

Hard sell or soft sell?

Soft, unquestionably. Soft, slow, but effective.

Home – London or Barcelona?

Barcelona, no contest. Sorry London, you had your chance.

Favourite place to hang out with the kids?

The beach, before the crowds arrive early on Saturday or Sunday morning.

I couldn’t get through the weekend without…

Beer, wine, sport, the Sunday papers, the BBQ and the family.
