Q: Do you take regular exercise and if so what?

A: Before my boys were born I used to swim and run every week, but a very hectic schedule doesn't permit that at present. When they sleep, I paint. I burn a lot of energy running after them and do try to walk at least three times a week. It gives me a chance to savour the beautiful landscapes around my home. Putting my music on and enjoying the fresh air can be total therapy.
