Have you ever seen a ghost?
Yes. Well, I haven’t seen one but I’ve heard one. Not even joking. This is… We had a house for a while in the countryside and when the children were very little, when they were in bed we’d be sitting down watching the telly and we’d hear footsteps across the, you know, above us. And the kids were very little so they weren’t of an age where they’d get out and make sure heavy footsteps. So we’d run up and think, It’s weird. What’s that? And, um, there was just definitely, definitely someone up there walking around. But weirdly it never felt frightening. *RH suggests that there was someone living in AR’s attic.* Yeah, I didn’t even think of that. But we had, um, a friend of mine who did see a ghost. So I think, yeah. But I didn’t find it frightening. I just thought it was rather sweet. Because the house we lived in did used to be a sweet shop, so I just thought, you know, gotta be a nice ghost, doesn’t it? *RH suggests that the ghost was a child lurer who died buying sweets as bait.* I’m glad I wasn’t living with you at the time because at the time we thought it was a really friendly ghost and we let it go, and at the end we couldn’t even be bothered to go and check on the kids because we knew something was going on up there, but didn’t seem to affect anyone; let’s move on.
If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?
Well, I think I would have one of Rodin’s sculptures. *RH asks whether AR has a particular sculpture in mind.* Uh, no, but I have… if I could just go in that room I could bring you this beautiful book I’ve got on all his line drawings and sculptures. And I just love his energy.
