Personal Quote:

[on not having children]: I was a late starter and caught up in my career, which only really took off when I was 30, when other people are settling down. In my late thirties I thought, hang on, did I forget to have children? But if I had really wanted them, I think I would have done something about it, and anyway, I didn't have the man in my life at the time. See more »
