THIS WEEK: We speak to Kez Luckett from Mummy’s Maid, the Long Crendon company that offers short-term household help

What do you wish they’d taught you at school, but didn’t?

Neuro-linguistic Programming. I think this would have been a fantastic life skill to have growing up.

Ignore what you’re doing now – if you could do any job in the world, what would it be and why?

I think I would like to have been a surgeon, to have the skills to operate on someone else would be amazing.

Of all the places you’ve been in your life, which would you recommend to a stranger?

The Maldives, it is a beautiful place with something for everyone and where I went on my first holiday with my husband.

If you could pass one new law tomorrow, what would it be and why?

The good deed law. To forward any act of kindness, help or support that you receive from others.

You can invite three people – living or dead – round for dinner. Who are they and why?

Sad as it seems I would love to have Alan Titchmarsh round as I love gardening. Earl Bakken founder of Medtronic as he invented the first ever pacemaker and is a very inspirational man. Last but not least Bradley Cooper from The Hangover as he is exceptionally nice to look at.

If you were stuck on Death Row, what would you pick for your final meal?

Garlic prawns for starter, thick fillet steak with béarnaise sauce, chips, mushrooms and peas. With hot chocolate fudge brownie with hot chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream or a lovely Sunday roast.

If you could write your famous last words in advance, what would you pick?

If it was easy everyone would be doing it.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

Time travel. I would love to be able to go back into the past and experience the Victorian era.

What’s your greatest fear? Something happening to my children or husband.

What was the last little treat you bought for yourself, or someone else?

A spa retreat for my husband and I.

If you had to give up something tomorrow, what would you find it hardest to live without?

My family, red wine and Cheddar cheese.

What’s the most important lesson that life has taught you so far?

That things might not always go to plan but always work out for the best in the end.

If you could leap forward to the year 2050, what would you expect, or hope to find there?

A cure for cancer.

Websites you use/value the most? discount website that normally includes a lovely dinner for two and hugely discounted hotel prices. this is my brother’s website which follows his walk from France to Spain with nothing more than a backpack and tent, it allowed me to see what he was up to and make sure he was safe.

What do you go out of your way to avoid? Tell us about it

Rude, loud obnoxious people. I would walk the other way to avoid them.

Always leave them laughing so please tell us a joke.

My daughter is six years old and just learning how to tell jokes so I will tell her favourite.

My dog has no nose. How does it smell? Terrible.
