Do you believe in love at first sight?
Perhaps not love at first sight or the more cynical lust at first sight, but I think we do possess an ability to recognise certain aspects of body language which appeals to our own particular characteristics.
Your first car?
It was an M Reg Burgundy 1 litre Citeron AX. It had only two owners who hadn’t seemed to have done much travelling in it going by the previous mileage, I am guessing it was a car driven on the school run or just out to do shopping. It was a bit sluggish to terms of acceleration and if it went too fast it would try and shake itself dramatically, but it was freedom for me. There was many an occasion that Shaggy and I would look at a random destination on the map and shoot off, our longest trip was a trip up to Blackpool with his cousin.
Who taught you to ride a bike? How did it go?
My Dad. It went alright but I preferred to go by foot and as such my bike just ended up with the shed and finally was passed onto the hands of one of the children who lived nearby.
Ugly and rich or beautiful and poor?
Well beauty is in the eye of the beholder and wealth corrupts eventually, so I’ll go for average and moderate income.
What was the first dish you could cook?
Well it was probably something like Welsh Rarebit but I am guessing that it isn’t really what the question is really aiming at. When I was a wee sandman in training we had Ladybird cookery book which had an interesting selection of recipes for a child to do beyond Chocolate Rice Crispy Cakes and Tomato soup. I remember making various desserts including Chocolate Mousse and a few other things aside from Scones and Rock Cakes. When I was in Secondary school we had had weekly cooking lessons for half of the school year and the first lesson we did was making a Pizza and this was followed by a Curry of some description. We were encouraged to make everything properly and get used to measuring out the ingredients ourselves as opposed to having it all shop prepared, something I believe needs to be encouraged once again and the instant ready meal consigned to the same location as 8 Track Cartridges, Betamax Video and Laser Discs
