The 'Operation Transformation' GP on the loves of her life including her four children and Han Solo.

The person

There are four! My four kids. They genuinely amaze and delight me every day

The memory

Seeing Woody Allen play jazz in a club in NYC with my mum - a huge jazz fan - on her first trip to New York, aged 80

The moment of the day

In my warm bed in the morning, with a huge mug of tea

The hero

Han Solo

The song

It's so hard to choose! Wichita Lineman by Glen Campbell; Wicked Game by Chris Isaak; I Draw Slow by Santiago; Landslide by Dixie Chicks; A Man Needs A Maid by Neil Young; Teardrops by Womack & Womack; and Elephant Gun by Beirut

The movie

Same thing here - The Empire Strikes Back; Casablanca; True Romance; Once Were Warriors; Wild At Heart; and almost anything by the Cohen brothers

The book

And here! A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry; In The Forest by Edna O'Brien; White Teeth by Zadie Smith; A Prayer for Owen Meany, and A Son Of The Circus, both by John Irving; Laura Esquivel's Like Water For Chocolate; and the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling

The outfit

A pair of jeans and my sheepskin coat

The accessory

My beat-up brown leather handbag

The gadget

My phone . . . sadly

The pet hate


The friend

Again, I can only narrow it down to four!

The beauty product

Vaseline. My lips get chapped very easily

The piece of advice

Don't wait around for your life to start

The drink

Gin with lots of tonic, ice and cucumber

The hotel

Since last week . . . Hayfield Manor in Cork

The bar

Kehoe's on South Anne St, Dublin

The holiday

Somewhere warm and sunny, where you can practically live outdoors

The hobby

One of my favourite things to do is draw

The part of my body

My wrists . . . I can't get enough of them

The celebrity

Graham Norton

The virtue


The vice


The smell


The taste

It would have to be very, very hot Indian food
