The 80's slot on Virgin 10am - 11am. Either that or the party classics on Virgin from 6pm, but is not the same since Suggs from Madness stopped doing it. It's Tony Hadley now, and he's not as good.

I was looking forward to getting pissed on Saturday night. Now I'm nursing a hangover.

I re-edited a poem that I had edited yesterday and written a couple of days ago.

At the weekend. Now that I'm in Australia, I'm phoning my parents more frequently than when I was in the same country as them.

Look and Read (with Wordy)

I still remember some kind of song about the 'magic "e"' that transformed words (such as rid into ride and kit into kite).

Magic e's eh? You wouldn't get away with that now!!

Oh, Beki, there were lots. I think the apotheosis of children's broadcasting for me was the serialisation of The Hobbit on the BBC Home Service.

And there'll be no ageist comments from anyone, ok?


Can you please tell us a little about the first real friend you had?

Her name was Alison, she was two years older than I, lived opposite and we walked to school together every day. We were the only two girls of our age in our wee street. Every other young family seemed to only have boys and Alison and I each had two brothers so we were well outnumbered. Alison wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer - although I was younger than her, I dominated her easily - but she had a heart of gold. Unfortunately she had some health problems though I didn't understand these when I was young. We grew up together but grew apart when I went off to uni and she became a hairdresser. I was happy that she found a nice chap to marry, who took her off to South Africa and very sorry to hear of her death at the age of 31.

As I sit here typing this, I turn to my left and see just green trees and bushes and a telephone wire. It is a tree-lined road but the trees fill my view and the bush outside is shaking with sparrows jumping about in it. If I look over my left shoulder I see a 'for sale' sign in the garden on the corner. If I lean back I see the house opposite with the topmost window still curtains drawn. That is where the son sits at his computer. There is rain in the air and one or two people pass on their way to work. I am now off down to make a cuppa and phone Nin who is away on a poetry course this week and needs alarming at 7.


What can you see or think about as you sit writing the answer to this?

Looking up from my screen, I can see a Beken print of 15 meter yachts racing on the Solent in 1911. To the left I have a couple of old Cuban railway share certificates on the wall, and to my right, Jaspa, the parrot, is sitting on the window latch singing to herself and tapping the window with her beak. There is work to do on the desk, but somehow, I'm not thinking of that.....

Taking in the main moves, Guardbridge to Newport (when I was five), to Dundee when we got married, ...to Helmsdale... to Perth... to St Madoes... to Livingston... to my present home in Paradise, that makes seven times.

Please tell us about your most important unfulfilled ambition and how you propose to achieve it.

Well, I guess being head of a school is my most important ambition and I feel on track to achieving that. My other one is learning to speak French fluently. Perhaps the three weeks I spend in France from tomorrow will help.

Words like 'motorist' or 'consumer.' As if these categories of people actually exist. As if i am a different person when I ride my bike or pass a shopping mall without buying any crap.

I enjoy listening to English spoken well, whatever the accent. I used to think I didn't like the Belfast accent, but that's because I associated it with Ian Paisley, which isn't fair at all, not least because he's not even from Belfast. But I could listen to Tom Paulin till teatime.







What accent, if any, do you not like?
