As well as news and current events, Daisy has a wide range of other interests, which she writes about and comments on, including all aspects of modern family life - she's typical of the "sandwich generation": juggling elderly parents, teenagers and a career.

She loves interior design and is mad about upcycling and furniture restoration, upholstery and house refurbishments. She admits to being addicted to Ebay. Her taste in culture is eclectic and seldom high-brow.
She lives in North London with her husband and two children as well as Sparky, a rather needy Tibetan Terrier, who is also a seasoned broadcaster.
