Good Housekeeping Magazine

About a month ago I was emailed out of the blue by the Assistant Features Editor of Good Housekeeping! What a surprise that was - I'm not a subscriber, though of course I've read the magazine in waiting rooms over the years!
Anyway, she wondered whether she could interview me about our allotment for a feature about happiness - well our plots certainly do make us happy (most of the time!)  :-)

So, yesterday I went to Studio G at Snap UK in Hackney, London for my photo shoot! I'd had to give them my clothes/shoe size so was expecting to be togged in some sort of Laura Ashley dress and wellingtons or possibly dungarees and a straw hat! In fact they wanted a more elegant style...

I tried on 6 or 7 different outfits and then had my hair done and make up applied by people from HMS Creative so I barely recognised myself! Then I went through to the studio for the photos to be taken by Colin Bell. He took a lot of photos with me wearing two of the chosen outfits - really quite embarrassing with about 7 people looking on! My smile was beginning to break and posing doesn't come naturally but apparently they got some shots they were happy with.

So, now it's just a case of waiting for the November issue of Good Housekeeping to come out - can't wait, but I think I'll leave the modelling to other people in future!!
