Personal Quotes (4)

I'm childish and silly. Most people tease me because I'm a bit daft.
I'm not very good at going to sleep, and that's probably my worst problem. I don't need much more than seven and a half hours, but I probably get six. I take all my problems to bed with me and fret. I can't switch off.
I lived with my mother all my life until she died, and I don't really think I knew her, because I was always using her as my mother, if you know what I mean.
[on not having children]: I was a late starter and caught up in my career, which only really took off when I was 30, when other people are settling down. In my late thirties I thought, hang on, did I forget to have children? But if I had really wanted them, I think I would have done something about it, and anyway, I didn't have the man in my life at the time.
