It’s almost the weekend, and that means it’s time to put your feet up and wind down with a few fun, quick-fire questions.
This ‘Time Out’ features Carol McGrotty, head of transformation at disruptive cloud technology specialist Vapour, who has become something of a DIY enthusiast during lockdown and doesn’t think twice about placing cheesy pop at the top of her playlist.
What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?
Currently, I’m taking delivery of my DIY cocktail and Dine in at Home kits. I love how small hospitality businesses have really embraced the challenge to adapt their model in the face of restrictions. It’s great to still be able to support these organisations during tough times.
What is your hobby?
I’ve become an interior design enthusiast – I’ve joined online forums and communities to pick up tips and advice. However, it now means I’m addicted to completing projects around the home where I can revamp any of my furniture.
What is your favourite movie?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?
I originally applied to be a midwife when I left school, so I think I’d go back to that. At the time, I got an office role – to cover the gap before the term started – and the rest is history.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
To be invisible.
What is your favourite genre of music?
I’m sorry to say, but it’s definitely cheesy pop.
If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?
25th May 1967 – when Celtic won the European Cup, defeating Inter Milan 2-1. In all honesty, it’s not because of the football as such, it’s more that I shared this moment with my late father and saw the joy and emotion on his face when the final whistle went. That is a precious memory that money can’t ever buy.
