This is a beautiful picture of me, my brother and my mum and dad outside our house in Ireland in 1976. My mother was amazing-looking; she was tall with really great legs. I think she looks the absolute spitting image of me now in this picture. I even recently had a blonde bowl-cut exactly the same as she has here. As a child she would dress me classically in velvet dresses, plaid and Arran jumpers. There was one green jumper in particular that I used to scream with tears whenever she tried to put it on me. That must have been my first fashion tantrum, aged six.
