I remember Warren Lees.

I didn’t have any teachers as famous as Warren Lees in the right way. One boxed at the Olympics and about half a dozen have been convicted for abuse. One went on a current affairs program, came out and defended gay teaches. He was sacked before he got home. It was mid 70s and a Catholic School.

Had plenty of famous coaches.

Who is the most famous person you have been in a toilet with?

Yes.  Pretty much everyday.  Organic frozen: broccoli, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries (sometimes I swap out blackberries for dark cherries) mixed with this zero sugar vitamin water.  Will soon throw in chopped spinach and see how that tastes.  The one I make now is soooooo yummy!  

How many times a week do you do some form of exercise?

Yes. I kept it by the sink downstairs for when the grandkids came - got a downstairs toilet as well as upstairs. It's now in my bag cos I haven't got a spare one.

Would you still go to a café/restaurant while the government/opinion dithers?

Manual....but a small lawn.

Are there lapwings near where you live ( we saw a couple when out riding today )

No, unfortunately. Only ever seen them in Scotland and, if I recall correctly, Yorkshire.

Have you had a flight booked within the next few months?
