The world in balance (i.e. no conflict, no one living in terror, or starving) or open fire, good glass of red wine and my family. 4) Why do you love to Chuckle?  It suits my pingy brain- every day is different I have the privilege of working with an amazing team and wonderful families. 5) What is your most treasured possession?  The thing I treasure most is my family closely followed by Chuckle Productions. My most treasured possession is a stone shaped like a heart that Thea and Drew found in the river and gave me.
