I guess it's being born in the 1950s, but when I was little I loved the Queen, the Pope, Winston Churchill and Bobby Moore. I used to send the Queen poems, and a rope horse I made at primary school, and I always received a crisp white envelope back from Buckingham Palace with a thank you letter sent and signed by one of Her Majesty's Ladies in Waiting. It wore off a bit in the 1960s and 1970s, when I could be seen at school clutching my dead cool copy of the Little Red Schoolbook, but now the Queen once again evokes fond feelings in my Anglo-Saxon heart, like a Mum who you appreciate once you're over your teen years. So this window says A Health unto Her Majesty!
Lifelong bookworm, love writing too. Have been a theatrical agent and reflexologist among other things, attitude to life summed up by Walt Whitman's MIRACLES.
