Age Is A Challenge

Age is a challenge to the mind and the body but like every challenge I’ve ever met, I have risen to it. There is an entrenched belief in society that getting flabby and sedentary and disconnected from life is an inevitable part of the ageing process. But that’s just not true.

Letter to Berkley 1st School, Wiltshir

Dear pupils of Berkley 1st School,

First of all I would like to say what lucky children you are to live in such a beautiful part of the country. When I was a little girl I came to stay in Berkley in the summer holidays with my cousin who lived with her family in Church Farm just opposite your school. I had lovely time playing in the fields and being with the animals. On Sundays we always went to Berkley Church and I remember thinking it was the prettiest church I had ever seen. Several of my relations are buried in the graveyard.

I Am A Chocoholic!

I admit to being a chocoholic which as you may appreciate could give me a bit of a problem in my professional life. As the Green Goddess I am expected to be on a permanent diet and never to be tempted by anything so sinful as a chocolate But I’m pleased to be able to tell you that contrary to the picture sometimes painted of me by the media I’m actually quite normal. In fact I am not fanatical about my diet and I have never been fanatical about any aspect of my life. I prefer the Philosophy of life which says “moderation in all things” and “a little of what you fancy does you good”
