What's your current drive?

A black Range Rover Sport. I've always wanted one and I decided this year on my birthday I was going to buy one without telling my husband, so he was quite shocked but he just said "look if you budgeted for it I'll leave it up to you". If I have a plan and a budget I'm not frivolous with my money.

What do you like or hate about your car?

The only thing I don't like is I had a car years and years ago that had heated seats and I get really cold and it doesn't have heated seats.

The most annoying thing, more of an inconvenience, is when I put my boot up it hits the roller door in the garage.

What was your first car and what happened to it?

It was a 1969 black MG and I wish to this day I still had it but we traded it in for a family station wagon when I got pregnant. It is my ultimate dream to one day get that 1969 black MG as I've always loved old cars.

During your childhood, what car did your family have?

We had every single car you could imagine, a purple Kingswood, a white VW Passat and an olive green (Chrysler) Valiant. So I don't know what it was with my parents and colours, but if it was out there we had it.

What is your dream car?

The black MG. I would love to restore one but I do like the idea of buying one and it's all nice and pretty. It would be my goal to have that and tow along one of those old 1960s retro caravans.

Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
