Karen’s Favourite …


Cape Town: It’s such a beautiful place and is full of happy memories as my husband proposed to me on Table Mountain.


Shawshank Redemption: I mean, it’s an absolute classic, isn’t it?!


Roast Beef: Not sure you can beat a Roast Dinner with all the family – and it has to be beef, every time!


Cricket: It’s a very traditional sport. It’s easy to watch and is something we can all enjoy as a family.


Reading: It’s so important to find time to do things that help you relax and unwind after a long day, and there’s nothing better than a good book!
