Started script writing course and sat wondering what on earth I am doing. I was older than the oldest by at least 10, probably 15 years - despite wearing black and dying my hair to hide the grey, I felt very silly. I guess the crunch came when we were asked to discuss films we had recently enjoyed - Stanley Kubrick's name flew around and a list of great sounding films that I had never even heard of, let alone seen. I then had to admit the most recent film I had seen was Bedtime Stories - amusing, but not exactly cutting edge.
I held my own more solidly with TV, but again, I am less clear about life outside of Balamory than perhaps I should be. Jane, the long suffering tutor slammed in the final nail when she said - "Oh yes, you've got kids - how many?"
I love being the mother of a big family, but I want to be just me sometimes. The question is who is that me?
