Most definitely The X-Files a thousand times over!
Han Solo or Indiana Jones?
Hmmmm this is tough one but I’m going to have to go for Indiana Jones. It’s all about the hat! Where’s your hat, Han!!
Night on the tiles or Early night with a good book?
Oh for me it’s always going to be a night in with a good few picture books!
City break or Camping in the middle of nowhere?
Ah, I don’t do camping but perhaps a cottage or a hut in the woods. That would do me just fine but I do like the bright lights and architecture of a wonderful city though.
Pencils or Pixels?
Oooh another tough one! Hmm, I think at the moment I would have to say pencil as I am in love with the new set of polychromos my lovely other half got me for my birthday recently. Whether I will ever get the time to put them to good use is another question!
