WHEN DOES YOUR WEEKEND START?
Never on a Friday, sometimes on Saturday and usually on a Sunday.
PERFECT NIGHT IN
A full house with my four children and all their friends and some of our friends. We would eat and sing until the early hours. And when I wake up, everyone else has cleared up.
PERFECT NIGHT OUT
Eating freshly caught fish in a distant, remote, snowy place after a long journey. The Northern lights would be glowing and no one would speak English.
IDEAL WEEKEND PARTNER?
A long-lost, and perhaps much-forgotten, friend or lover.
FAVOURITE WEEKEND SHOPPING DESTINATION?
An open-air market with genuine sole traders in Africa, India or London Fields.
FAVOURITE PLACE TO WALK?
The Balkans. I have started a holiday company there called The Natural Adventure Company.
WEEKEND YOU’D LOVE TO LIVE AGAIN
The weekends when our children were born at home, and all the family gathered to greet the newborn. I am now patron of Neighbourhood Midwives, which is my wife Annie’s social enterprise.
WEEKEND YOU’D HATE TO LIVE AGAIN
The day that my youngest daughter flooded the basement and the floor floated.
PERFECT SUNDAY BREAKFAST?
In the open after camping, eating eggs and bacon with the Himalayas as a backdrop.
YOUR CURE FOR THE SUNDAY BLUES?
Get it off your chest, have an argument and let the tears flow, make up, eat, laugh and watch a World Cup final.
YOUR DREAM WEEKEND
I’d take a ride on a spaceship and watch the sunlight cross the Earth.
