How do you relax?

In a recumbent position with a bottle of red and the love of my life. Not both the same.

Five people you'd invite to dinner and who would cook:

The Boss would cook her slow cooked lamb with roast veggies in the pot. After that I am at a loss as I would want more than 5 there and I cannot choose. Apart from Susan Penhaligan that is – she never knew I existed -shame
