I’ve been tagged by Julia to name 7 random things which has caused my brain to go into underdrive – ie shut down. But after some pencil sucking (no comments please), here they are:-
When I was born my mother and I both contracted some infection and were kept in hospital for ages. I lost weight, shrivelled up and went purple and was known as The Prune. My hands and feet still go purple now when I’m cold.
I’ve been a late starter in a lot of things - I was 38 when I met my future husband and 41 when I married. Mind you, he was even older but we won’t go there…
When I want a bit of easy escapism, one of my favourite films is Pretty Woman. We watched it last night and Himself enjoys it too. His favourite line is “We’re the same you and I. We both screw people for money.” Except that by the end, of course, they don’t…
I didn’t get broody until I was forty. This really is NOT a good time for these hormones to kick in. Don’t try this one at home – or anywhere else for that matter.
I have 3 claims to fame: the first is that I was once in hospital with the Queens Master of Music.
The second is that I chatted up Michael Heseltine at an office party when I was 18. I hasten to add that I didn’t know who he was. I thought he looked lonely.
I met Margaret Thatcher when she came to the BSB News studios when I worked there. She had incredible presence but she was so SMALL…Rather than tagging anyone, please pick this up if you feel like it!
