1. What’s invisible but you wish you could see?
Do you know the smell, when the rain comes after a hot spell? The air is filled with an incredible scent. It’s called petrichor and is one of my favourite natural aromas.

2. Would you rather watch your neighbor(s) having sex while you are in the same room or anonymously watch your parents having sex?
Definitely watching my neighbours having sex while I’m in the same room. I have a fair few neighbours so this would keep me busy for a while…
3. For what are you nostalgic?

4. What is an unwritten rule where you work?
The owner of the business I work in (pre-lockdown) manages to make everything look incredibly stressful when it isn’t anywhere near as challenging. So I guess his unwritten rule would be “Don’t get as flustered as me!”
5. What is an unwritten rule or mutual understanding in your home?

6. Which body part do you wish you could detach and why?
Currently… the second toe on my left foot. It is a nuisance!
