I find shopping too stressful. I get hot and flustered and irritated and feel sick after I've bought something.
I love escaping into film, because everyday life I find quite troublesome. So any excuse to go into a cinema and say goodbye to the world for a couple of hours, or in a book or whatever, is great.
I have a cat. When I was younger, I had a guinea pig.
You've got to go with what feels instinctive and true to your heart, and filter out all of the other stuff.
I think some women try to make you feel you're not all female because you haven't given birth. There are a lot of prejudices. Some women think women who have animals are deeply sad, because what they really want is a child. Mind you, there's probably an element of truth in that.
I think my cat is adorable, and I probably give it too much fresh chicken. Maybe if I had a child, I'd be giving the chicken to the child.
I live on the edge of Bath. It's really lovely, but its very loveliness freaks me out a bit. It's peaceful, a great antidote to the craziness of being on tour, but sometimes I feel as though I've retired.
Good dreams are better than films or books.
I carry my own food around on tour; I permanently have carrier bags full of cereal and bananas.
I'd like a telescope, but I probably wouldn't look at the stars that often. I'd definitely be looking into people's flats most of the time.
I'm one of those people that, if I'm in the country, I will have a look inside an old church.
Any abuse of animals is the same as abuse of men, women, or children.
I think a lot of singers are shy people. I suppose singing on stage is not like talking; you are not as exposed.
No one ever recognises me. Everyone says, 'You don't look like your pictures.'
There's not that much English folk music that is really that appealing.
