1: What was the last thing you did today before answering this lot?
Planning a residential holiday for some children in the school, went into school and met with some police officers and a kid because he keeps finding / stealing / holding bikes for people that are stolen. Drove around Oxford to try and find a kid that had run out of school, drove around Oxford for half an hour, couldn’t find him, police were called and he was found in the city train station. I have met more police today than in the last three years. It’s 12.44pm now and I am sat back at home with a cup of tea in front of the fire, watching my cats fight.

2: Where did you ride your bike last?
Down the woods, when it was frozen.

3: What was the last new trick you learnt?
Blimey, probably through the summer doing oppo tables. Did a four fifty once, but that’s all a bit fancy, so ill say a one-foot.

4: When did you last build up a new bike
2009 when I received my new frame. Thanks for the help local with helping set it up. My fingers are real fat you see.

5: What was the last album you bought?
Billy Ocean’s Greatest Hits on record.

6: What was the last book you read?
Iron Man comics send me to sleep. I read the Accidental Death Of A Dog, I think that’s the title, it was really good, it’s about a kid with special needs and how he viewed his life and happenings, and is accused of killing a dog.

7: What was the last BMX video you watched?

8: What was the last city you visited?
Lapland, to see the northern lights, didn’t see them but it did get as cold as minus-43 though. We went for a walk at half six in the evening and Jennifer was drinking a Diet Coke, it was so cold it turned into a Slush Puppy.

9: When, and where, were you last genuinely lost on your travels?
When just myself and my wife went on a lad’s weekend for my birthday, got super drunk, spoke to a lady for an hour about how she gave birth without taking any drugs to make it easier. Went to get in a taxi and he dropped us at the wrong hotel.

10: What was your last meal?
Made a roast dinner last night.

11: What was the last great gadget or invention that you saw or bought?
A matchbox that holds two match boxes, in Lapland.

12: When was the last time you scared yourself?
Winch Jam Line spin. I generally scare myself a lot, I like the saying “One scare a day keeps the cobwebs away.”

13: Where is the last place on earth you want to visit?
