Weeding in the garden – it’s my favourite job.

Spending an afternoon at one of the open days holding rabbits and guinea pigs in baskets so children could stroke them! The children got so much out of this.

The atmosphere and the people!

I have really enjoyed learning about cereal crops, in particular the unusual varieties.

I think probably cats because they are affectionate but also independent.
