What a wonderful weekend I had. I had been looking forward to this special day for many months. When I went to Stage School at the age of 14 it was one of the best days of my life. It not only felt like home but I had found my vocation in life and that was to perform, I loved every minute of every moment of each day.
I couldn't wait to get to school for the next dance and singing lesson. I met a girl called Tami in my first few days and I knew we would be friends for life. Our friendship grew to an amazing bond that we treasure to this very day.
Later in life Tami decided to move to Seattle . I was heartbroken, I miss her everyday. I have tears in my eyes as I write those words. But they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. We have so much fun together and she is an incredible women, friend, mother and wife.
I adore her mum, dad and brother too. I spent many a time at Tami's house on sleep overs singing down the kettle lead thinking we were the bees knees. Thankfully her parents were in the industry and our crazy days didn't seem out of place.
Her dad is a musician and mum is Caroline Munro – guys, how can you forget that amazing poster that took the world by storm in the chamois leather bikini advertising Lambs Navy Rum? She went on to star in the Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me' playing the Bond-girl Naomi. The rest is history.
Tami flew into London from Seattle on Friday and held a surprise 60th Birthday for Caroline. Pretty hard to organize from Seattle but it was amazing. The shock on Caroline's face brought tears to our eyes.
We had a wonderful night together and it was great fun catching up with cast and crew we hadn't seen for many years. Caroline's daughter, Georgina, who is gorgeous and just the spitting image of Caroline, looked stunning in her Kate Moss dress.
Tami flies home on Friday and I will no doubt shed a few tears..but here's to the next trip – to Seattle that is!
