When not working, Julia loves being active and outdoors, whether practising yoga, wild swimming, planting trees, out on her bike, walking or camping. A committed veggie and aspiring vegan, she can often be found at her allotment with her husband Adam and his two daughters, endeavouring to wrestle a self-sufficient vegetarian lifestyle out of the ground and away from the slugs, rabbits, pigeons ….. Her & Adam’s self-sufficient ambitions are supported by a rescue hen (sadly there were two up until July 2021) and by their two diva-like rare breed hens. Their cat, Kitty, does nothing at all to help in this ambition. When confined indoors Julia continues her attempts to learn German, Adam’s native language.
