MOVIE MEMORABILIA: Movies; Reading (Jane Austen is my favourite author. But my favourite type of book is mystery fiction. Mostly cosies rather than hard-boiled thrillers); Music; Dancing (Ceroc: a form of dance like jive in some ways, but you can do it to modern music, and not just to 50's stuff. I met my John at a Ceroc class); and Competitions (I enjoy doing competitions - postal, internet etc. I have won a couple of things - including a trip to London to the theatre, quite a few books, and a set of expensive saucepans :o) I'm still waiting for the house, car and holiday!!!)

TESTIMONY: Well, I think it was all My Man Godfrey (1936)started by my mum, I always used to sit and watch old movies with her on our little black and white television. We would sit there with a box of paper hankies beside us, and some sweets to dip into and spend an afternoon enthralled. My main passion is the sophisticated screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s - the glamour and the fun. I love to sit on a wet Sunday afternoon and watch a great old movie that makes me chuckle.
