My dad sent me a postcard of Piccadilly Circus two months before I was born, feet first.
The first film I saw at the cinema was E.T.
I learnt my first English words listening to The Beatles in my parents' car.
I grew up watching James Bond films (and fell in love with Sean Connery).
I was teasingly nicknamed 'Nessie' by some kids at school.
I didn't care for sunshine and blue skies until I moved away from my native island (Sicily).
I had my first pint of lager in Lyme Regis when I was 18.
I moved to Scotland the day Princess Diana died (the two events are not connected).
For seven years, I felt the coldest weather and met the warmest of people.
I fell in love at first sight with an Irishman.
I first felt my baby kick at the theatre, watching Kinky Boots.
He came into the world 9 weeks early.
I live in London and work less than a mile away from Piccadilly Circus.
