Tales of a Tiller Girl Part 1 of 3

A heart-warming nostalgia memoir from a member of the world famous dance troupe, The Tiller Girls. Based in London in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Irene's story will transport readers back to a more innocent, simple way of life.

This is the story of a little girl who loved to dance. Growing up in London in the 1930s, dancing was so much more to Irene than just a hobby. It was her escape and it took her off into another world away from the harsh realities of life. A fairytale world away from the horrors of WW2, from the grief of losing her father and missing her mother who she didn't see for three years while she was drafted to help with the war effort. And far away from her cold-hearted grandparents who treated her like an inconvenience.

Finally it led to her winning a place as a Tiller Girl; the world's most famous dance troupe known for their 32-and-a-half high kicks a minute and precise, symmetrical routines. For four years she opened and closed the show at the prestigious London Palladium and performed on stage alongside huge stars such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Judy Garland.

It was a strange mixture of glamour and bloody hard work but it was certainly never dull. And being a Tiller Girl also gave Irene the opportunity to see firsthand the devastating effects of WW2, both here and abroad.

Heart-warming, enlightening and wonderfully uplifting, Irene's evocative story will transport readers back to a time when every town and holiday resort had several theatres and when dance troupes like The Tiller Girls were the epitome of glitz and glamour.

Unscripted Extras

Read these short extracts from Alan Sugar's Unscripted: My Ten Years in Telly and remind yourself why you tune in to watch him on TV. His witty put-downs, laser-beam glare and no-nonsense approach have won him legions of fans on the BBC's award-winning show The Apprentice. But how has the East End boy turned multi-millionaire - a man famously allergic to wafflers - coped for ten years in the arty-farty world of television? Of course he did it his way, as he reveals in the extracts featured in Unscripted Extras. He describes why he can never be scripted, remembers some of his famous putdowns in the boardroom and cringes at a lead balloon moment. He also explains to a baggy-jumpered beanie-hat-wearing young director that he will not be spending all day filming a five-minute trail and refuses to let Piers Morgan make him cry. Funny and outspoken, this special eBook short is Alan Sugar at his entertaining best.

Isolation Is Overrated - 8 Steps to Stress-Free Living With Roommates

Ask anyone that's ever lived with roommates if they have any horror stories, and they'll likely have their fair share.

We've all got a horror story or two - from moving in with friends or relatives, to sharing an apartment with people that started out as complete strangers, there always seemed to be some level of craziness that we found ourselves living with at one point or another.

The main reason why I wrote this eBook is because I know that a great many of the bad experiences people have had while living with roommates could have easily been avoided had they just done some things a little differently. Just in the small ways we interact (or don't interact) with the people we live with can, many times, be the very root of all those roommate horror stories we've come away with.

So like most bad experiences in life, we can learn new ways and ideas on how to deal with them or even prevent them from happening again. That's what we're going to do here.
