Ok encouraged by the naughty Lynne I thought I would share a bit more about me that I know I haven't mentioned on here before because I don't talk about this one much - in fact I don't think I have even mentioned it to Yvonne or Kathi!!! I can hear their ears pricking up big time now.
Well when I left school I went off to college in Stamford and from there I went off to college in Broadstairs, Kent (known as the Isle of Thanet then, don't know if it still is) I spent two years there training to be a beauty therapist (not a common career back then). Anyway, when I left there I went back home to live whilst I found employment. Whilst looking my old flat mate rang to say there was a temporary vacancy at the place she worked and would I be interested, even though it was not what I had trained to do. Well under the circumstances I said yes, even though it meant a move to london but I could live in, so accommodation wasn't a problem. That was on the Friday, Monday I got a train to London to be interviewed, came home that day and packed my bag and on the Wednesday I started work. The work was only meant to be for two wks to cover sickness, 18 months later I was still there.
This was my new home and work place
and this wonderful lady was my new employer.
Yep I was the Queen Mother's new linen maid!!!
