I was taught by my father. He was head of the primary school so I went to his school until I was 11 - I was the youngest of four daughters and we had all been taught by him. But I didn't really enjoy my secondary education that much probably because I am a very physical person and don't enjoy sitting at a desk all day.
Time in general has always been a central obsession of mine - what it does to people how it can constitute a plot all on its own. So naturally I am interested in old age.
