and daughter fishing trips on the Zambezi should have meant a more
sedate activity, until we were capsized, and I woke up 4 weeks later
after suffering from a nasty bought of malaria - funnily enough
my dad disappeared for about a month on a business trip!
the pets..ahh..well the monkey was good fun, the dogs were alright,
but it was my fine collection of spiders I was most proud of, although
I was always friendless when I took them into school to show them
I did form a particular bond to our chickens, and was often being
hounded by my mum for stealing the eggs out of the fridge "because
I wanted to save them" - well, we've all had our dizzy moments!
loves to get up early in the morning to present a forecast.
move to England aged 8 during one of the worst winters on record,
was a big shock to the system, and I decided that once I'd learnt
to fly a plane I'd be jetting out of here ASAP.
Hence joined the Royal Air Force Cadets, but then injured my leg
playing football, had to leave, and got on with exams, degrees (first
degree at University of Sussex, and a Masters at Leicester University)
and the real world.
Three years work in the IT industry, finally led to fulfil my ambition
to work in the media.
