Time Out!

I find it very hard to take a break and just kind of sit back. It’s important to work hard but it’s also important to find down time where you can. This is why I like traveling. I know lots of people really hate flying and all it’s ‘wasted time’ but I tend to use it as a mini forced break. I’m often taking the train – not far, 20 miniutes to a couple of hours visiting designers who are outside of London. I cherish this time. I’ll get a coffee or diet coke and a package of crisps and just enjoy the journey. I’ll usually have magazines and a book for the journey but will only use them when traveling back in the dark.
