A tale I heard
Broadcaster Vanessa Feltz on family disapproval:
"A chorus of disapproval accompanied my childhood. If I went to wash my hair, there’d be one grandma on the phone and another in the kitchen both asking, isn’t it too late? Too early? Didn’t you wash it yesterday? I became accustomed to being constantly commented on and deconstructed. Suddenly you’re grown up, they’re all dead, and it’s lonely and quiet."
