You’ll often find me doodling on my iPad. My creative mind needs to be occupied so, on a desert island, I’d need a solar powered iPad. My Apple pencil would be close at hand too, but I’d maybe set about creating the eco-island limited edition, crafted from driftwood. Apple, please take note.
I need my universal SIM card, made by ‘Martians on Mars’, so that I could carry on doing and creating lots of secret things!
I’m a lover, not a fighter, but a sharp knife would be essential, mainly for cooking with – but it could turn out to be a handy survival tool too!
While we’re on food…my four key ingredients, to make anything and everything I cook taste like it’s worth eating, are chilies, lemons, ginger and garlic. Don’t ask me what fish I’d wrestle with to serve with my ingredients – that’s another story.
I’d need an empty whisky bottle, so I’m reminded of what I’m missing out on when it’s gone. I could wait in vain hope of some passing pirates to top me up.
Food. Obviously. There’s no greater, refreshing source of vitamin C than the humble satsuma. So, a tree that grows unlimited easy-peel satsumas please.
I would take my daughter’s sausage dog, Peggie. She loves me unconditionally and would be great company.
Just in case I get lonely.
Great track to dance to among the satsuma trees.
Because it proves anything is possible and dreams can come true.
It’s the best film I’ve seen this year! And because it made me cry.
