Has there been anyone in your life who you feel were influential? You know someone you look back on and looked up to. Someone who really made a difference and had lots of time for you as a kid. Where there any specific reason why and lastly, do they know? For me, it was my uncle. Having no kids of his own until I was about 8, he had loads of time for me and took me all sorts of places. He was in the met police force and I remember him taking me out on his police bike and into a police station for the day. He had his own motorbike and took me out quite regularly on it and told me not to tell my mum . I’ve always been nuts on bikes since. I just remember silly little things I done with him but not my dad and in away feel quite mad that my dad wasn’t as much of an influence as I’d have liked. I’ve not seen my uncle since I was ten because he had an affair and were later divorced. However, this August I’m going to my cousins wedding and will see him for the first time since. What’s’ weirder, he has no idea what an impact he made on me.
