I have drawn this picture with LOVE from the heart because I love my Daisy more than any body.

Meeting Freddy Garatey, from Freddy and the Dreamers was a highlight of my life. I loved him so much I wanted to marry him. I was only eight but I had it all planned. It was at a show in Croydon in the sixties. I met him at half time. He came out of the changing rooms and said ‘you don’t like me do you’ I said ‘I like you and I want to eat you.’ Then he gave me a kiss and a cuddle, I was stunned for about half an hour.

I live with my brother and my cats Daisy and Buddy. We have adopted Buddy as he was a stray. I could never have children so I see my cats as my children.

I have diabetes and Turners’ syndrome. It is an illness that attacks your height. I am 4 foot 3 inches. I have had a stroke and it has affected my left side. I hate being rushed; that is one bug bear I have, I really and truly hate it. I think the story of the rabbit and the hare is good, as firstly I love animals and secondly there is a fable about the tortoise and the hare. Even though the hare is really fast the tortoise won as he kept plodding on, although he is the slowest animal on earth. Just because I’m slow it doesn’t mean I have to do everything in a second. I feel rushed a lot of the time although my carer gives me a lot of time and cooks me lots of lovely dinners.

I love sixties music like Eddie Cockran, Adam Faith, The Lady Birds, The Scaffolds.

My sister Shirley is the eldest. The second is my brother Danny with whom I live. My sister Valerie is third in line, Pauline is the fourth and I’m the fifth. Then there are two younger ones; my brother Ian who has died and Tracy who lives in Croydon. I just love cats; any body’s cat; I just love them.

I have gone off Boy George. I used to love him but I think he is horrible now after what he did.

Sam is lovely. She is gorgeous. I love her to bits. She does so much for me. I cannot fault her on anything. She comes every day apart from Saturday and Sunday. She is lovely. She gave me a shower today and washed my hair and dried it.
