Home / Gran Slam / WENDY TAYLOR


Age: 80


Make room, Wendy Taylor is in the house! Wendy is a creative force to be reckoned with and one of her (many) mantras is “don’t go beige with age!” Wendy has a tremendous sense of humour and sense of fashion.

Her adventurous attitude has taken her to many places, including a TV show where she won a Bonneville Pontiac. Not joking! She’s got a talent for hosting parties which has seen her roll with pollies to minor royalty (and some petty crims, like any good party). She’s also got a talent for words and is not short on material!


when i slide into that steaming sudsy water i see

80 years of puddings


lemon delicious puddings

bread and butter

sticky date

and steamed puddings with treacle


my thighs suggest buttery biscuits


buckets of hot salty chips

16th May

International not diet day


permission to have slabs of rich dark chocolate

green jelly snakes

peanut brittle

Turkish delights

cherry ripes

and i remember  2 jaffas

one for the mouth and one to roll south

down the wooden floor of the old Odeon theatre



I haven’t forgotten cake

Nigella says

to bake

this cake


4 mars bars


i must confess

to this excess

i love the chocolatey gooey mess


Now i see in this steaming water

a tum that has succumb to a vat

this rounded turn has become an overflowing vat


Sugar, salt and fat.
