We have to thank DOLORES for this so if you find yourself bored to tears remembver it was all her idea - LOL!
Elizabeth Margaret (there may have been some royal family obsession going on with my parents), born 20th April 1963 in Sydney, Australia. First child for Francesca (a hairdresser) and Peter (a tyre salesman). My brother Chris came along a year later, followed by a sister, Francine and then another brother, Shane. We lived in a little town called Eastwood (about 25 miles from the city) and our neighbours also happened to be my grandparents. Our home perched on top of a hill and at night the view of the lights below was beautiful.
My grandfather was italian, grandmother irish so there were some passionate family gatherings next door - LOL. My mother had 4 brothers (all younger - one was only a few years older than me) who at some stage or other when I was young lived next door. They were BIG on practical jokes and most afternoons after school I would be set upon with a hose or a bucket of water would fall on my head as I walked through a doorway. I learnt to pay back as well but never as good as what I got. I guess that's where I got my crazy sense of humour from.
Stand By for the next episode.
