Shoreham Airshow 2007
Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

NOSTALGIA – ST. JOSEPH’S CONVENT GRAMMAR SCHOOL – ABBEY WOOD

Now I know why it always takes me ten times as long as I anticipate to sort out my paperwork – nostalgia. Came across a file with old school reports, old newsletters etc and though the School is now converted into flats, I thought I’d post our school song just in case anyone out there remembers little Janet Atkins (and I was little and always at the front of the line because I was small) from 1952 – 57.

Our school motto was 'Potius Mori quam Foedari'  or something like that.  I failed Latin at school but remember that it translated roughly as 'Death before dishonour'

Oh, and another bit of useless information - Kate Bush attended St. Jo's - years after me of course.
