Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Did I mention someone asked me if I had grandchildren last week? I was aghast. Regardez mon visage ! Regardez moi bien dans les yeux! My son was beside me! i had to quickly recall that time someone on the bus asked if he was my younger brother….

Then yesterday at gymnastics, (where your back handspring and tumbles are the only marker of anything) I realized I could technically be the mother of many of them, who could have offspring, and then I returned to bouncing about and upside down ness and recalled some of my favourite women in the world are 70, so if I am up beside them this is a fine thing! Next time I will reply — yes. I left them in the car with their grand dad, Mick Jagger.
