Five things

Reading time: 1 minute

I’ve been tagged by Nigel Paine and Martin Belam – so here goes…

Five things you might not know about me:

  1. I went to nine nurseries/schools including O Pequeno Principe (The Little Prince) nursery in Brazil and the Junior English School in Rome, Italy.
  2. At Southampton University I was the long-haired lead singer in a band called SINS (which stood for Suck It ’N See!). Our biggest gig was in front of 1500 people celebrating Chamberlain Hall’s 10th “Bar Birthday”
  3. Both my ears are pierced.
  4. In 1992 I was Office Angel of the Month while temping at South London Dial-a-ride. The office postcode was SW19 8UG – I told them the mnemonic was “Swig bug” and that’s how they remembered their postcode from then on. I don’t think it’s connected to the Angel award.
  5. I broke my nose doing the high jump. I was 15 years old and representing my school at an athletics meeting. I cleared the bar (1.58m) but had to pull out. My record was 1.78m which was also the school record for a short time. I also did 110 metre hurdles, javelin, 800 metres and 1500 metres.

  1. Snap. In 1989, I too was office angel of the month! Never knew why though. They came down to my place of work to give me something. Was it cash or a book token? I cant remember. Did they give you anything?

  2. I did loads of jobs for Office Angels but never made Angel of the month. I worked hard and was always polite. So what’s the secret you creeps?
