Haven editorial assistant, Anny: I’d looooove to be fluent in another language – any language would do! How cool would it be to whip out some French at a party, or surprise your friends by flawlessly asking a local for directions while overseas?

Haven publisher, Keeley: Becoming a mum I wanted to learn to French braid (done), sew on a machine and learn Spanish. I’m only one for three which is not good! I’ve since added underwater photography and video editing to my list for my own creative fix – always learning!

Haven social media guru, Katy: Gymnastics – I never learnt how to do the splits or a backflip!

Haven digital/Admin guru, Bec: Fashion design/pattern making. I’d love to be able to design up an outfit for myself, or my girls, and then whip it up on a sewing machine!

Haven intern, Millie: Another language, I think it would be amazing to have that skill on hand whenever you need.

Haven editor, Bel: My parents bought me a keyboard when I was 10-ish and, three decades on, I still have it and I am still adamant I’m going to learn to play that damn thing one day!
