Your best escapes

Statistics from

Anne Fawcett, small animal vet, got in touch to tell us about two ways that she has found to escape from the rigours of daily life.

‘My best escape was the quiet time at the beginning and end of the day under the covers with my late dog Phil. He was a big fan of just hanging out quietly somewhere familiar, which is something that helps me plan and recharge. It’s a luxury, but I need a good two hours a day of quiet, phone-, email- and work-free time to perform well. My cat isn’t quite as happy with this arrangement as he wants to be fed as soon as I am conscious.

‘My second best escape is photography. The photo below is of a tawny frogmouth which is being raised by a wildlife carer in Sydney, Australia. I took it while attending a wildlife photography course with a good friend.’
