Ours was a partnership made in heaven. I did what he asked, but I’m my own person and, fortunately, I’m quick-witted enough to keep up with him. But if I thought something wasn’t right, I’d tell him, and he would listen. Our good relationship lasted all our lives.
He was always in a hurry; there was never enough time because everything he needed to do was urgent. At least, he thought it was. What with the weekends of racing, he worked seven days a week. Not to work was anathema to him. There was no time for hobbies, although he did like models – he had a Scalextric set and train layout. Yet one Christmas he stopped playing board games with the kids – because they had begun to beat him! He just had to win at everything.
