Acting was never a career option, but every now and again, it's fun to play the part of somebody else, especially as there's no need to worry about what you look like, what you say or how you say it!
My opportunity arose when the society, of which I'm part of, that includes members of West Essex Golf Club, thoroughly enjoyed a weekend break at Dunston Hall Golf Club in Norfolk.
The finale on Saturday evening was a 'Cluedo' murder mystery sketch and yours truly was Mrs Peacock - the brief I recevied was:
Stylish socialite, intellectual upbringing, bit of a snob and leads a flamboyant lifestyle, a keen ornithologist with a pet love of birds of prey. Has had various marriages with some of her husband’s meeting their deaths under mysterious circumstances.
In case you're wondering, I'm not like Mrs Peacock! However, I hired a dress and accessories, and enjoyed prancing into the room as a suspect, imagining that I was more like Lady Mary from Downton Abbey!
