One of my favourite things growing up was the visits to my grandma Sabina. I loved the different air, the flexible schedule, and of course, the attention. There was one thing I didn’t like though: the three stone fireplace with firewood and smoke in the dark kitchen which had no window. I told myself that I would not have a kitchen like that when I grew up. Instead, I imagined a bright kitchen with plenty of natural light and a gleaming cooker. This vision, I realised later, influenced my choices in high school, and university, through 3 decades of a corporate marketing career, and even the way I show up as a parent.
