deborah…

I named my daughter after this song. I really did. 1983, Manchester: it was playing on the radio in some café on Oxford Road, because it was Dave Edmunds’ birthday. I was on my way to an ante-natal check at St Mary’s Hospital. Very young, very confused. Hadn’t even dared to think about names. Song stuck in my head. April 15th has been known as Dave Edmunds Day in our family ever since. Happy birthday Dave Edmunds! (aged 69, April 15th 2013) Happy birthday Deborah! (aged 30, April 18th, 2013) xx
