      I like music, so I go to gigs with my friends – I’m going to Glastonbury next week which should be great. I really like horses, so I ride my friends horses and I also help out at a local Riding for the Disabled group. I really like to travel, and lots of my friends live in different countries now so it’s great to go and visit them.

      I think it’s really important to take time out to relax so that you’re not too tired to think properly at work! I guess the main way that my hobbies reflect my work is that I like to try new activities – over the last few years I’ve tried ice skating lessons, windsurfing and loads of other stuff.

      In my spare time, I watch football matches, play squash, go walking and watch TV. I also spend a lot of time just hanging out with friends and family, and I love cooking so I quite often have people round for dinner.
      I don’t think any of these things particularly reflect my work ethics.

      I enjoy playing my guitar, reading, playing video games and watching TV and movies. I’ve also recently starting looking into photography – which is great fun.

      Do my hobbies reflect my work ethics? Hard to say… I’d say I have a fairly relaxed approached to both my personal life and my work – I’m never bored, but I don’t like to stress myself out!
