TONIGHT MATTHEW, I’M GO­ING TO BE A HIPPY

Cotswold Life - - CUMMINGS’ GOINGS -

Re­mem­ber those won­der­ful cheesy but strangely ef­fec­tive trans­for­ma­tions in Stars in their Eyes? Jane from Chel­tenham would walk on stage and tell Matthew Kelly she was go­ing to be Kylie and three sec­onds later she reap­peared through the smoke in a pair of gold hot pants and pro­ceeded to bang out a cred­i­ble ver­sion of I Should Be So Lucky. I hang onto this trans­for­ma­tion when my heart pangs at the thought of six months with­out my Ali. Why? Well when I flick through pho­tos on my phone I look at the be­fore and af­ter shots of what hap­pened to Kate, my older daugh­ter, three years ago. Look­ing at them next to each other, I can al­most imag­ine she only left for a few sec­onds.
