Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?
After a few beers in our local with my wife, Fridays are definitely a night spent on the sofa winding down after a busy week.  

A super Saturday?
Usually it’s an early start and into work for a few hours, then it’s back home for a late breakfast and a read of the morning papers. The afternoon is spent relaxing in front of the TV, then we’ll head out for an early evening dinner.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
A couple of nights away in our motorhome. Preferably somewhere in North Yorkshire, where we could spend the time walking and chilling over a few beers. Huxley and Marley would come with us, too!

Memorable mini-break?
We recently had a week up in Scotland when the temperature was soaring. We spent the week walking around Ben Nevis and Loch Ness and meeting up with friends. It was fantastic.

Sunday best?
It has to be spending time with my family. Sunday is a great day to catch up and walk the dogs on the beach. After that, it’s off to Dad’s to sample one of his splendid roast dinners.
