Words from the not so wise!

by Startacus Admin

When I have ventured into these businesses it’s always been a disaster, I can’t, don’t and won’t fit the model in all sorts of ways from my attitude to making quick decisions to the way I dress. I am my own person, not planned for just as it comes.

Proud as I am to be form Yorkshire where, of course we are renowned for our straight speaking, what I don't do and don't tolerate is bad manners. Being kind saying and thank you are a huge part of who I am and I do not believe if something is not how you perceive it should be the way to deal with it is to tell that person straight away publically (well certainly not before trying more appropriate and subtle methods).

Why make enemies when it’s so much easier and so, so much more pleasant to make friends and believe me I am no softy just rather, I hope, a genuine caring person who is grateful for the chances she has had, for not blowing it all on red and for having a family and staff that love and like me and for whom I feel the same.

I would like my epithet to say “well she did the best she could and it wasn't half bad”
