Sally likes walking in Dorset, tasting and collecting fine wines, and going out with her two children (at least when they are in a good mood). She is about to start learning to drive and navigate her husband’s Sports Cruiser around the estuaries of Essex. And in her spare (?) time she is studying with three equally crazy friends for Pure Maths and Applied A level!
