Do you consider yourself to have a healthy lifestyle?
I suppose I do, though the evidence below may point to the contrary. All I can say is that I do my best, though I am aware that my best is often not good enough.
Do you exercise regularly? If so, what do you do?
Not strenuously. My favourite form of exercise is walking, which I'm happy doing on city streets or out in the Yorkshire countryside.
What time do you go to bed?
What time do you get up in the morning?
About eight o'clock.
What do you have for breakfast?
It varies. Some days I have no time for anything more than a quick cup of tea, others I may have a bowl of bran flakes or muesli, or a poached egg on toast. If I'm lucky, I get the full English, but I tend to stay clear of the fried bread these days.
If I'm at home, usually just a sandwich, ham and tomato, salmon, tuna or something like that. If I'm out it can be anything. I had prawns with tomato and avocado followed by grilled kingklip on a bed of wilted spinach in Cape Town a few days ago.
Again, at home it's either chicken, pasta, stir fry, grilled fish or something like that. If I'm out, I favour oysters, steak frites and a cheese plate, or a good tasting menu if I can find one.
A KitKat with elevenses. Maybe a nibble or two of cheese in the late afternoon, and if I'm being really decadent, some dark chocolate with my red wine in the evening.
Do you take any supplements?
Sometimes I have an extra glass of wine, but otherwise I stick to reasonable portions and don't much go in for supplements.
How much water do you drink?
Far too much, or so it seems. It doesn't taste very interesting, except in some rather unsanitary places, but I hear it's good for you.
I know I should drink more on planes to counteract the dehydration flying causes, but that means I have to go to those horrible airplane toilets more often, so I'm afraid I don't.
Do you have a skincare routine?
Regular washing. And I try to remember to apply sunblock when I go out.
With as little hair as I have to cover my scalp, it's something I have to remember.
Depends what you mean.
I don't gamble or smoke. I'm not a drunk or a glutton. I don't do drugs. I guess I have none.
Unless you count procrastination, though I usually think of it, when I get around to it, as a virtue. It stops you from acting too rashly.
