My mother in 1980
Did you know that my mother had something in common with Zsa Zsa Gabor?
Well she did.
She was not, however, a bleach blonde, trophy wife who married nine times .
Nor was she the sweetheart of the tv chat show, even though I am sure she would have provided Parkinson a run for his money.
My mother never flashed cleavage, drank champagne or claimed alimony like a greedy old tart but in later life she did indeed drink gin and call everyone " darrrling"
Crying " Darrrrrling" was easier than remembering names.
