Things you didn’t know about Paula Leyden
I was born all tangled up in a knot.
I hypnotised myself to stop eating chocolate – otherwise I would eat two or three bars a day.
I set off the fire alarm at boarding school to get out of a Double Physics class. I am not proud of that and wish I had paid more attention to Physics.
I am allergic to cats and horses – and breed horses.
At boarding school I sat for eight hours in front of a plate of liver refusing to eat it. I was eleven. The nuns eventually gave up and sent me to bed. I hate cruelty and smugness.
The furthest I have sleepwalked is about half a mile.
I can neither draw nor sing, but I can do other things so don’t mind too much.
I have been told I am very stubborn, but refuse to believe it.
I am extremely content in my life, but wish we lived in a kinder world.
