What’s on your iPod?

Everything David Bowie has ever recorded. Not a huge amount of room left for much else, but I’ve squeezed in a little Rolling Stones and Hot Chip.

Do you twitter?

No, I don’t feel it necessary to know what anybody is doing at every second of the day!

Favourite gadget?

Bose QuietComfort 2 noise-cancelling headphones. Incredible sound quality and actually make it possible to sleep on a Boeing 777 ...

Do you use Facebook?

I resisted it for months and then gave in! It has proved to be a fantastic innovation of our day.

What’s your favourite website?

I collect vintage watches so love checking www.austinkaye.co.uk and www.littlecogs.com.

What was the last thing you bought online?

A load of ink cartridges claiming to be HP. They clearly weren’t and succeeded in destroying my printer. Lesson learned.
