Q.How do you spend a day off?

A. “These days I’m usually at the midwife! If I don’t have any medical appointments then I will try to visit my gran or my mum and dad, or go for a walk in nature somewhere. I need to meet up with friends more so trying to fit that in too!”

Q. Would you rather have feet for hands, or 3 noses?

A. “3 noses……how would you pick things up with feet hands?! At least I could wear a balaclava or something to cover the noses!”
