Samantha has lived in Putney all her life.
The great conflict in her life to date has been whether to be a true-blue Chelsea football supporter or a black and white Cottager (Fulham).
In the end she always supports both teams, but is in paroxysms of doubt when they play each other.
Her star pinups are Tom Jones, Peter Bonetti and Tommy Trinder, and her best male friend at the moment is Sir Alfred, her pet poodle.
Samantha is a private secretary to the director of a large company.
“Unfortunately it isn’t like Mogul,” she told us sadly.”

I bought Marc a 1960’s glamour magazine for Christmas (along with some 1950’s crepe paper which could possibly win the prize for most random present) and after looking through it, I have to say glamour magazines back then seemed so much more respectful to women than they appear to be now. It’s filled with such a variety of womens shapes and sizes and some fantastic make up and clothing. It even shows a young Natalie Wood, albeit not in the nudie. Gap in the market?

    Antiques fair in Durham! I asked a postcard seller if he had any nudes as I collect them, and he then showed me a booty stash behind his table. He had quite a few but I only bought the one.
