Describe your perfect Sunday morning...

As boring as this sounds on Sunday mornings I actually do all my chores so I can then relax and enjoy the rest of the day! Once I’ve done that I like to get out of the house and get some fresh air. My favourite thing to do is go and see some wildlife. I also love to sit and look at the sea.

What was the first album you bought?

The first was Take That.

What would be your luxury item on a desert island?

I get very lonely on my own so I would have to say my phone or iPod

What are you favourite places in Yorkshire?
