My relationship with the Philharmonia Orchestra brought me many times to London and I will always reflect positively on that early period of development with them - their patience their warmth their dedication.
I'm not really easy to live with! There needs to be unlimited patience and unconditional love. Men I've known before loved my independent spirit and were proud of my success to the point that they'd become jealous of the time I devote to my career.
My impression is that most women public service workers have a long fuse. Precisely because they care so deeply about services more than anyone they still want to find a sensible and fair negotiated agreement. But their patience has run out.
True enough nature has endowed me with a fair measure of patience and composure yet I should be lying if I told you that having seen the reporter off on his way to make his deadline I fell peacefully asleep.
