Fuck, I am who I am / Sasha Henderson

Sasha Elizabeth Henderson (I’ve used my maiden name as I’ll always prefer it to my married one!), aged 49 (in my head I’m still about 20).

London living PR consultant and aspiring author. Pug owner and make-up junkie. Arsenal supporter (sorry, not sorry!) and tennis addict (yes please Mr Federer!). Mum of two and holy hell….I’m trembling on the cusp of 50.

What makes you laugh?

I have a very puerile sense of humour, think The Inbetweeners crossed with Jimmy Carr and Joan Rivers.

When did you last cry?

When my street stood clapping and cheering for our NHS workers.

What’s your earliest memory?

Getting a solider suit for my 4th birthday. It came complete with big bushy Busby hat. I can still remember the absolute JOY I felt when I unwrapped it.

Describe what ‘love’ means to you.

Knowing that there is someone out there who understands you completely – and accepts and values you for everything you are; good and bad.

What makes you unique to everyone else on this planet?

The nonsense that swills around my head

Name 3 people (living or dead) you’d invite to your virtual quarantine dinner party.

Richard III (Did you really kill your nephews?); Georgette

Heyer (my favourite author) and Tommy Lee Jones (I love me a taciturn, tough Texan!).

Describe yourself in 5 words (this can be a sentence or 5 separate words).

Game for a laugh - always

Who or what has made the greatest impact on your life?

Jesus (sounds trite, but it’s true).

Any regrets?

Absolutely; a couple of major ones….but there’s not much you can do to reverse the clock….so better to look forward and play the hand you’ve picked.

Tell us something no one knows about you (and I mean no-one)? Until now.

At my (very posh) prep school, I forced my entire year to stand on stage and sing Chas & Dave’s “Ossie’s Dream” in assembly. I can still remember the horror on my Headmistress' face!
