Mary Berry’s story. If you didn’t see this programme on BBC2 last evening, you might like to catch up on i-player. It was fascinating to me because she attended the same school as I did, though 6 years earlier. There were lovely shots of the school and teachers. The uniform was the same! Mary after contracting polio as in the Bath and Wessex Orthopaedic Hospital for some weeks, where I also was a patient for several months. It was great to see so many places which reminded me of my childhood. I was always inspired by my history teacher, Miss Ireland, and loved reading books about times long ago. I have 3 historical stories due for publication next year, which I hope everyone will enjoy.
