Living with Alice in Wonderland

Alice is a name with some epic resonances.

Pepperland meets Wonderland: jamming with “Alice” (Lois and Steve’s granddaughter, Georgia) at the Wonderland party.

Alice was an unusual name for my generation.

Like my namesake, I was always changing size.

I was named after four Alices.

My great-great aunt, Alice Hughes of Anglesea.
