10 More Things That Most People Don't Know About Me

Part 2 (and the last!) in this series.

1. My favourite all-time TV series is Red Dwarf. I have all the episodes on DVD.

2. I helped build a house at Lake Tarawera, along with some bloke who's related to my children.

3. I used to be a commercial orchid grower. Not cut flowers, but plants that we imported from their country of origin, established in greenhouses and sold to hobby growers by mail order.

4. I also used to work for the Wildlife Department before it became the Department of Conservation, where I handled the fishing and game licences for the Rotorua and Taupo regions.

5. I drive a Volkswagen Golf.

6. I'm a huge fan of Tolkien and Lord of The Rings.

7. I have never read a Mills and Boon romance novel.

8. I have a Certificate in Adult Teaching, and a Certificate in Horticultural Industry Practice.

9. I am teaching bread-making classes to local people.

10. My favourite colour is purple.
