Choice vacation:

Dream-about meal: 

Really good lamb curry with rice.

Favorite at-work moment: 

When the customer expresses great appreciation for what we have done and is genuinely pleased with the end result (and when HS2 sent a box of ice cream, perfectly packaged with dry ice, to my 105-degree doorstep after the birth of my son).

A few favorite things: 

Reading, ice cream, good food, the solitude of being on top of a mountain so remote that you can hike for five days without seeing anyone, the sound of rain, crisp fall mornings, and biltong.
