Cherie Blair - My Fake Diary

Sunday, 26 August 2012

I told the Telegraph the other day:

It's nice to be comfortable, but I'll probably never ever stop worrying that I've got enough.

We're all shaped by our background. Not having a pauper's funeral was my grandmother's utter obsession. It was an important part of being respectable.

In some ways it rather astonishes me that people think it's odd that I was concerned about making sure that I paid the bills.

When my husband became a politician his income was fixed but, if we were going to have a nice holiday, it was going to have to come out of my income.

It's nice to be comfortable, but I'll probably never ever stop worrying that I've got enough.

I'm conscious that my children come from a different background to me and Tony too, because although Tony was born comfortable, his father didn't come from that and lost everything when he was 10.

They need to know that they're lucky.

And by the way, I do think I'm lucky.

I do deserve it though...
