A   Where did you go on holiday?

 Well, we booked tickets to go to Spain. But then I got a new job and we couldn’t go.

A   Oh, what a pity.

 Well, we went to Scotland for a weekend – that was nice. And we’re going to go to Portugal for a week at Christmas.


A   Did you have good weather in Italy?

 Well, it was good for December. It was cold but sunny.

A   Did it rain?

 No, it didn’t. It was dry.


A   Where did you take this photo of Tom Cruise?

 It was in New York. I was coming into the hotel and I saw him coming down the stairs. There were a lot of journalists waiting in reception. Everybody was shouting. So I went outside and I waited until he was getting into his car.


A   What’s your favourite photo?

 This one, I think. I really like this photo because it’s not the usual way you see a top model. She was waiting with the other girls for the fashion show to begin. The other girls were all talking but she was just quietly reading a book.

A   It’s a great photo.


They made what we all thought was their last album in 2001, and they did a would tour the same year. Everybody said that that was the end but suddenly they made another album – their last one – the next year.

A   Anna, tell Jane about what happened to you that time.

 Well, I was driving home from work. It was a Friday evening, about half past five. It was winter and the weather was horrible – it was pouring with rain. I live in the country and to get to my house you have to go along a road where there are a lot of trees and very little traffic. Suddenly I saw a car stopped in the middle of the road and there was a man standing there waving his arms. He wanted me to stop.

C   So did you stop?

 I didn’t know what to do, but in the end I stopped and got out of my car and said, ‘What’s the problem?’ Then suddenly another man ran from behind a tree and got into my car and drove away.

C   Oh no!

 And then the first man got back into his car and drove away too! So I was just left standing there in the rain with no car.

C   What did you do?

 Luckily I had my mobile and I rang my friend Pete, and he came and found me.
