Five things we can't live without: Family, friends, good food and wine, fresh air! We love holidays, especially in Greece, Spain, France, Italy and skiing in the Alps. We like meeting people, socialising with friends, rugby, horses and walking in the glorious Kent countryside. We try to always enjoy the moment!
