A prize for something sexy

My daughter has tried many jobs. I only had about sixty. So far she's had 107. She's from the Del-Boy School of Commerce and is often heard to say, 'This time next year we'll be millionaires.' So what's she up to now? Pop over to and take a look.

WARNING -  My sister just did exactly that and said, 'I ventured onto the site - and beat a hasty retreat. It should do well.'

 Daughter is using descriptions for each day of the week - Flirty Friday, Sexy Sunday, Thongs on Thursday. My lovely friend, Betty and I came up with Winceyette Wednesday, Thermal Thursday and Flanelette Friday. If you can come up with some sexy descriptions (Unlike mine and Betty's) for all the days of the week I'll pass them on to Daughter who will choose a winner who will get a copy of Ghostwriting - how to write for others or you could choose Writing From Life (2nd edition).

Jimmy Savile didn't touch me

Jimmy Savile didn't touch me. He gave me a hug and he smelled of baby talc. I was at Stoke Manderville Hospital with my family. The kids were at school back then and, with friends, had raised money for Jimmy Savile's appeal to rebuild Stoke Manderville. When I wrote to tell him what they'd done he invited us there to meet him. He hugged us all. Then he took us on a guided tour of the wards. I'll never forget it. All those gorgeous young men paralysed after being injured in motorcycle and rugby accidents. As we passed their beds Jimmy spoke to each of them. He knew their names, joked, and made them laugh.
I can't remember being groped. I've asked my daughter and she says she can't remember either. Perhaps if we tried hard enough we might recall something. Others have managed it after three or four decades. I'm not saying they weren't abused. I'm just reporting my experience of meeting the man.
