Mindy’s back!

Mindy's back!

Doesn’t she look thrilled?

It’s an amazing story. Successful and much-loved Account Director puts her career on hold to try her luck on the USWPGA tour. She relocates to southern Florida and spends 18 months traipsing around minor golf tournaments, until an unfortunate incident with a crazed possum in some Orlando undergrowth leads to an injury that requires her to have two fingers stitched back on.

Downhearted, she decides to ditch the embryonic golf career and begins travelling with a carnival in Alabama. Her time as a ‘carny’ is marred by late payment issues and a punch-up in a bar with the bearded lady, and she leaves under a cloud. Fortunately, those long hours spent in the trailer weren’t wasted, as her design for some calipers to relieve bow-leggedness is seen by a Lousiville entrepreneur who pays her $200,000 for the patent and worldwide distribution rights.

Having outstayed her visa in the US, she returns to the UK and considers an offer to join her cousin’s tarmac company in Biddulph, until a chance meeting with me (Neil) in the pulses aisle at Waitrose led to an offer to pick up her marketing career where it left off.

As I say, an amazing story. And entirely untrue. Amanda is back after maternity leave, and we’re delighted.
