As an adult
As an author
Things you didn't know about Rebecca Lloyd
- I love moths, and the English names for them; they are poetic and fascinating – Lover’s Knot, Hart and Dart, the moth Uncertain, Mother Shipton, Cream-spot Tiger.
- I think I would like to go up in an air balloon, but I’m also nervous of heights, and so now I just watch them floating over my house in the summer and wave up to the little people in the baskets, and imagine they can see me and are waving back.
- My garden is full of toads, frogs and newts, and every night in summertime I go out with a torch and see how many of each I can spot.
- I’m very bad at wrapping presents; I always make a real mess of it, and have been advised that I should use tissue paper.
- I think I should swim more because I do love it, but I never seem to be able to fit it into my day.
- I don’t know if I was a day-dreaming child or not, but I wish that the idea of day-dreaming was thought about more kindly by adults, because in day-dreaming you are using your imagination, and it is a precious thing.
- When it isn’t cold or windy, or raining, I love to take my bike out and cycle down leafy lanes and along the side of the river.
- I love clouds and how you can imagine faces and animals and landscapes in them. I’ve watched clouds since I was little, and think I always will.
- My favourite food is prawns – I could eat them till the seas run dry.
- In my best dreams, I am flying, sometimes above fields, sometimes high up by the ceilings in vast rooms.
