London, May 15 : In the latest extract of her memoirs, 'Speaking for Myself,' Cherie Blair disclosed that she found love with her future husband on the top deck of a Number 74 bus. In her autobiography, Cherie Blair said that she was already seeing two boyfriends when she met Tony Blair and that their love blossomed during a journey home on a Routemaster.
She described attending a Christmas dinner in 1975 hosted by the future Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine of Lairg, who was then head of the future couple's chambers.
"Tired though I was, I decided to sit it out until Derry went home on his own. Eventually he did. Then Tony and I took the bus . . . It was a double-decker and we went upstairs. It was completely empty and by the time we got off we knew each other better than when we'd got on. And even better the next morning," Times Online quoted Cherie, as stating in her book.
"So that left with me with three men in my life. Tony knew about John [Higham] but not about David [Attwood]. John knew about David but not about Tony, and poor David fondly imagined I was living a quiet life of hard work in dreary London," she added.
