yourself in five words
Determined, no nonsense, patient, kind-hearted, sociable
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
I have only received the worst piece of advice
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I was a young geography teacher at Eveline High school. I was invigilating
a geography class and I sneaked out of the class when students were
in the middle of writing their final O level exam. I had to go and

me for advice. I was also very neat and attractive
are you doing next?
Going upstairs. I'm on punishment since April 2008. My husband
said I haven't been performing very well so I have to give
him a dosage every afternoon. If I complain he says I have to respect
conjugal rights. I wish I was one of those unreasonable feminists.
I would tell him it's my right to refuse. I hope he won't
