HELLO DOWN THERE!
OK…to celebrate my birthday I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself. I was actually born in China, but I think my parents sold me ( I know, how could they part with someone so adorable?) Boo hoo, they probably live in a zoo. Well I might try and find them one day. Anyway, on February 23 2000, I was adopted by Pauline Conolly and her husband Dr Bob, so I use that date as my birthday. My darling godmother Vonnie told me I was born in the Chinese year of the dragon; which means my strongest character traits are; LUCKY, FLEXIBLE, ECCENTRIC, IMAGINATIVE, ARTISTIC, SPIRITUAL CHARISMATIC. Explains a lot really.
I lived in Sydney to start with, and the first really exciting place I remember going was to was the 2000 Olympic Games.
Yes, I was very embarrassed about what Pauline wore, but what could I do? My green and gold was far more restrained and tasteful.
And after that we went to America and then to Europe lots of times. I always seem to be packing my suitcase. I wear my English jumper in the UK, except for during the cricket or rugby. Then it’s on with the green and gold.
Travelling makes me feel very insecure because I sometimes get left behind. You know that baby who was left in a handbag at Victoria Station in the play by Mr Oscar Wilde? Well Pauline pretended to leave me in her handbag when we were in London. Very funny…. NOT! When I do get left behind Pauline just looks a bit sad and says she will have to replace me! (yes..she does!) Dr Bob glares at her and goes off to find me. He is such a treasure.
My favouite food is porridge…natch! And puddings.
My worst fault used to be smoking, but I’ve given up. Otherwise it’s being disrespectful to a certain person.
I became an apprentice editor at a very young age and now I want to be an author like Pauline (only much better, which won’t be difficult). I’m writing an unauthorized biography of her. My girlfriend Milly is helping me with the research.
Well I also help Dr Bob-the-builder quite a lot. You might say I have several strings to my bow. Oh #!*#$!, that’s a cliche isn’t it? And me an editor!
When I’m not working I like exploring the village and riding my bike down pres…precipitous paths in Pauline’s garden. I am utterly fearless, and never wear a helmet. I also like canoeing on the Thames when we are in England. No life-jackets of course, but Dr Bob can swim.
I can’t be bothered telling you anything else now. It has been a big day, what with my birthday and all. I wanted a motorbike or a red sports car but I didn’t either of those. Do you know what I got? A picnic basket! It’s quite nice…made of wicker . Those bottles of wine might only be cordial, but I’m hoping not.
It was a bitter disappointment, but Milly does like picnics.
