PERNILLE HUGHES has had many words printed in The Sunday Times, most proudly the word “boobs”.
Seduced by the promise of freebies she took her first job in advertising, but left when Status Quo tickets was as good as it got.
After a brief spell marketing Natural History films, she switched to working in Children’s television which for a time meant living in actual Teletubbyland, sharing a photocopier with Laa-Laa.
Now she lives in actual Buckinghamshire, sharing a photocopier with her husband Ian and their four spawn. While the kids are at school she scoffs cake and writes in order to maintain a shred of sanity.
