Notes from class…
About me – Where I come from, when I was born, etc.
I was born in a small town called Culcheth, just outside Manchester in the north-west of England, in 1976. When I was born, I was very underweight and had to spend two months in an oxygen tent because I had a serious lung condition. My grandmother had a stand-up argument with my doctor and insisted that she would not leave his surgery until I was taken into hospital care. She was a terrifying woman. It is because I was born in the north-west of England that I support Manchester City. My first word, so I am told, was “light”, but I think it is much more likely that my first word was “City”. I moved house a lot as a child, so by the time I was a teenager I had lived in eight different houses in England and Ireland. My family eventually settled in Northumberland, in the north-east of England, which is a place I absolutely love.
My family – brothers, sisters, mum, dad, etc. – Tell us about their personalities. Include stories of things you have done together.
Where I live – What do you like/ dislike about where you live? Again, give lots of detail, and provide examples of things you have done.
My hobbies and interests… Lots of detail, but also explain why you enjoy doing these things.
