What’s not to love about men in kilts? —Photo from William Glen & Son

1-When is your birthday? Most precious gift that you would cherish lifelong? My birthday is in January and my most precious gift has to be, in case you didn’t already know, having my two amazing adult sons.

2- Which country and place do you belong to? I was born in Scotland and now live in London, where I’ve been for almost forty years.

3- Which supernatural powers would you choose – being invisible or to read others mind? Hmmm, perhaps I don’t want to know what’s on other people’s minds. So it’s got to be invisible, but only briefly. Imagine some big ol’ malodorous person sitting on my invisible lap on public transport, or people ramming their shopping trolley into my invisible ankles. Mind you, you don’t have to be invisible for that, people seem to have this compulsion around me.

4- What would you prefer – tea or coffee? Oooh, I do love a nice skinny, wet, extra hot, sugar-free latte, from my favourite coffee shop. Invariably, it’s never as hot as I’d like it.

5- How do you spend time when you’re free? Blogging mainly, reading, seeing friends and family.

Three things about me

  1. I’m the worst joke-teller ever. I never remember the punchline! I told my bestie a joke once and she laughed so much, she peed herself. Not ‘cos the joke itself was funny, but because she found it hysterical that I was telling a joke. She said it was the first time she ever heard me making a joke.
  2. Trigger warning and you might want to jump to the 3rd thing about me 😉 I slipped down the toilet, got my foot stuck, my chin hit the cistern, and I bit into my tongue in the process. Yes, I had to have stitches in my tongue. Oh, I was only little then, but I still proudly show off my scar when anyone asks.
  3. I was a majorette and a drummer in a pipe band when I was younger.
