What time are you up? My partner Cody [DaLuz] lets me sleep. I feed our baby Violet through the night, so I’m tired in the morning. He wakes up for work about 7am – he has Fridays and Saturdays off, not Sundays – but he’ll take Violet, so I can sleep a bit more.
What’s for breakfast? We do Cody’s famous home fries. They’re Indian flavoured – very oily and delicious. You chop onions, garlic, peppers, spicy chillies and potatoes all really small. Fry until the potatoes start to colour then add garam masala, some cumin seeds and ground coriander.
A Sunday routine? If it’s a nice day, we’ll go for a walk around the block. We do a lot of walking.
What do you listen to? Radio 4. No music, just people talking. It helps me feel at home. I love it in Nashville – it’s beautiful – but we really don’t know many people here. I’d like to go to a pub, but they don’t do pubs like we do. I miss them. To socialise you have to join a church and I’m not religious enough to do that.
What’s for lunch? We have gravy dinners. Cody eats meat, I’m vegetarian, but I’ll make him whatever he wants. At the end of the day, it’s dead – what can you do? You can’t revive it.
Sundays growing up? It was all about the roast. My mum cooked all day. If it wasn’t raining, we weren’t allowed inside – we had to go out and play. Otherwise we were allowed to watch movies. She’d deliberately starve us until 3 or 4pm because she thought if we were hungry we’d think the cooking was amazing, which totally worked.
What time are you in bed? I’ll get to bed about 1am. I’m still a night owl – that hasn’t changed. I’ve been looking at houses for when we move back to Devon. I’m a planner. People think I’m haphazard, but I’m not. I am always thinking way into the future.
