TOPIC: How I make it work
How I make it work 10 Months, 1 Week ago  
I work on Woman’s Hour three days one week, then two days the next, and I also pre-record the Saturday afternoon programme. I used to do it four times a week but after I got breast cancer in 2006 I decided to cut down.

When I am working on the programme, I get up at 5.30am, have a shower and put on my make-up – I’m incapable of leaving the house without having done my eye make-up. I never have to think about getting dressed, as I wear the same thing every day: black leggings, a plain black top (I have about 20) and a colourful scarf thrown over my shoulder.

I get to work around 7am and begin by writing the script for that day’s programme. I check it over with the producer, and at 10am I go on air.

Afterwards, the team have meetings about future programmes until I leave at around 1pm. It is a really concentrated environment – there’s no time to chat and gossip, as it’s very intense.

When I’m not in the office I still have work to do, as there are always books to read that we have planned to discuss on air, or a film or play to see – going to the theatre is one of my favourite things to do. My husband, David, loves the cinema so we go there a lot, too.

To relax I love walking my chihuahuas – Butch, Frida and Madge – in the parks near our home in north London.

We also have a house in the Peak District. When I’m there I’ll walk for miles in the hills – before curling up on the sofa in the evenings with the dogs piled on top of me, along with my Burmese cat, Suu Kyi. That is probably my favourite way to relax.
