This was my cue to leap into view and blast him with my ray gun or pistol (depending on whether I was a spaceman or cowboy), at which point he would feign injury – or sometimes, if I’d been a particularly good shot, death. My Napolean complex often led to sudden outbursts of anti-social behaviour. Mum and Dad made those early Christmases truly magical. The excitement at the prospect of a visit from Father Christmas was almost as difficult to bear then as it is to comprehend now. The house would fill with satsumas, nuts and tinsel; lights of red, green, gold and blue would be hung on the tree.
This faux naivety masked a sterner side, glimpsed one stormy night in Majorca when David and I returned later than promised to the apartment after an evening spent playing pool in a bar. We tiptoed in an hour later than expected, hoping to find Mr and Mrs Williams tucked up in bed, only to be greeted by the furious silhouette of David’s dad as he stood in front of the double glass doors that led to the balcony. ’ As he laid down the law in a most forceful manner, he was beautifully backlit by the lightning as it flashed angrily outside in the stormy night, swiftly followed by deafening claps of thunder.
I went to a private school in the nearby coastal town of Porthcawl. St John’s, an idyllic-looking prep school for boys, was set at the end of a tree-lined driveway and had as its motto Virtus, Sapientia, Humilitas (Virtue, Wisdom, Humility). As luck would have it, very much my own watchwords at the time. My first day at St John’s was a rather traumatic one. I cried bitterly as my mother tried to extricate herself from my soggy clutches. ’ Such kindness. The school, though in Newton, Porthcawl (on the South Wales coast), is forever frozen in my memory as a minor English public school; it seemed very precise and just so.
