Stepping over the edge

By ESTELLE ROBERTS

How to start? How to end?  And what’s in the middle? A jelly belly paunch, a rippling washboard or taut curves?

I used to be a beekeeper. Keeping bees was an interesting one amongst
the many incarnations I’ve had in the employment world. I’ve been a
wine-maker's sidekick or ‘lab technician’ as my CV states.  I’ve
cooked, cleaned, gardened, painted and bar wenched at a truck stop.
Looked after baby birds in Ireland and fingered beautiful coats, hats
'n' scarves in smoky cloakrooms in Paris. And of course I’ve made
countless coffees and waited thousands of tables.
