Thanks Mrs Katherine Swift,

Your long, flowing skirts and beautiful smile. Always telling us stories, and tales of your adventures, including your hitch-hiking travels across Europe in your younger years. The birthday song (on cassette, no less!) that you played, without fail, every time a student had a birthday. The occasional visits from your lovely – and incredibly tall! – husband and sons. Your carefree approach to life, your unwavering encouragement and motivation, and your ongoing ability to see the best in people. Thank you, Mrs Swift, for your life inspiration (and you weren’t far wrong with your ‘aged 25 prediction’ either… gossip columnist… PR consultant… semantics, really!)
