My Perfect Sunday: Anna Wood, BPE Solicitors LLP

I've been involved with the construction sector since: a “six week secondment” to assist the construction specialist at my previous firm, during the final seat of my training contract in 2010.

The best thing about my job is: the variety of the work and the fact that my colleagues, clients and other contacts take their work, but not themselves, seriously.

The worst thing about my job is: being a female, lawyer, under 35 years of age – sadly there are still too many people working in construction who have a problem with at least one of those attributes: luckily they are getting rarer.

The first album I ever bought was: I actually bought two in one day: Kylie (by Kylie) and Ten Good Reasons (by Jason).

My favourite holiday was to: Goa

My favourite bar/restaurant in Gloucestershire is: The Vine (top of the High Street, Cheltenham) – amazing Thai food, lovely staff, good drinks, great atmosphere.

Make mine a (e.g., pint of real ale/rum and coke): For now, a pint of milk! But looking forward to a rum and coke in March/April!

In 2015.... I am excited to be becoming a Mum for the first time (but I’ll be back in the office by the Autumn!)

My perfect Sunday would be: A lie in, brunch cooked by my other half, a walk with our gorgeous dog, meeting up with friends in the afternoon and then Sunday lunch at my parents house in the evening. (Alternatively – anything other than D.I.Y.!!)
