Full interview with Pat Made - Read
yourself in five words
Patient. Kind. Focussed. Helpful and principled.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Do what you like. And . . . never worry about claiming credit. You
know what you've done. God knows what you've done, and
that's all that matters. And I think that brings a lot of
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I'm thinking about that? Hmmm, ridiculous, ridiculous . .
. well, once I got home very late. I was so stressed, in the dark
that I actually left the car door open the entire night, and it
wasn't until the next morning when somebody thought someone
had broken into the car, that I realised I was the one who had left
it open (laughs). Wide open! I don't mean a bit! The door
was fully open, the whole night (laughs again).
is your most treasured possession?
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Being not able to actualise who you are and what you want to be.
have any strange hobbies?
do you dislike most about your appearance?
I don't know. I've never thought about it. I don't
spend quite a lot of time looking at myself, you see. So, I just
use the mirror to get ready to go.
is your greatest extravagance?
is your greatest fear?
That I might not live to see my children be the best of all that
they can be.
have you got in your pockets right now?
is your favourite journey?
I took a train journey from Italy to Denmark and that was one of
the most pleasurable things I've ever done.
are your heroes in real life?
My mum, she's going on 87. My daughter, she's 31.
and where were you happiest?
I'm happy on trains. I cannot tell you why. I'm happy
when I'm in the company of lots of women.
is your biggest vice?
were you like at school?
Too studious. I should have played more.
are you doing next?
Probably going to go see if that bead shop is still open. I like
those lovely beads you have on. (Laughs).
