One of the most enduring pop stars of the 1980s, first as part of Yazoo, then solo, Moyet (left in picture) last year returned with a new album, 'The Minutes'.A mother of three, she lives with her husband in Brighton I first met 'Ma on Twitter.
My mother, whose single, childless chums were jetting off to the South of France, was a grumbling pool of resentment.‘Why do we have to go to Wales? His old grey Wolseley was packed to bursting with tent, tent poles, camping stove, ground sheet, washing-up bowl, folding table and chairs and, on top of everything, one triumphant pink, plastic bucket (with lid). Within minutes, the rain was lashing down in sheets. ’ asked my grandmother, noticing the startling lack of holidaymakers at the campsite – which was little more than a field sloping off towards a cliff edge.‘I guess we should just pick a spot and get the tent up,’ said Dad. The walls were a bright, synthetic orange and the door a crayon-coloured blue. The sun would shine, we would feel sand between our toes and our days would be filled with peaches and cantaloupes. ’ asked Mum.‘Well, all right then, we’ll have corned beef. Mum knew that this was a holiday on the tightest of shoestrings. After pitching our tent, Dad took us along the headland to the Logan Rock. The sea below us was a turquoise blue; twisting a long piece of grass between my fingers, I felt liberated and at peace. Alarmed and fascinated, I heard her threaten to use the trowel if they didn’t all shut up. I was leaving junior school and had no idea of what the future held for me – other than the annual hell of another family camping trip. ’To break the tension, Dad drove us to Alum Bay at the western point of the island. ’‘I don’t care if they do.’ Mortification was already coursing through my veins when, to my horror, there was a sudden, loud unzipping of our tent door. The unzipping of someone else’s tent was an affront on a par with murdering kittens.
Over the noise of the wind I could hear my mother shouting at me to scrub myself. ‘What do you think you were doing last night with our zip? With a guttural, ‘What the bloody…’ my dad grabbed the campsite owner’s hat, threw it to the ground and stamped on it.
