Six Truths About Being Six
Six Things About Being Six
4. Bessie Weekly Ballet School played a big part of my life when I was six. Bessie was a formidable soul who whipped us into shape. At the end of year concert (again with the concerts!) I was to lead one line of tutu babes onto the stage while another girl did the same on the opposite side of the stage. The climax of the dance came when we were to enter in one line and the other little girl and I had a slight disagreement on who was to have the honour of leading the line. It all ended rather badly with the two of us fighting fiercely on stage. My parents were mortified and Bessie wasn't amused. I gave up ballet.
5. Our holidays that year were spent at our favourite destination, Patonga. We spent two glorious weeks swimming, fishing and admiring big brother's new sailing boat.
