  • I am not great at computers. If I were to try shopping through Google, I'd end up with 33 vests.
  • I wasn't the brightest button in the class at school, but I enjoyed cooking and baking. I wasn't clever enough at Maths O-level to get onto the cookery teaching course I really wanted to do, so I did a catering course instead.
