It's interesting to see the way Hayley uses the spade. It would appear that she is really left-handed, although she writes with her right hand.
Yes Richard, you're quite right, she's quite left handed.
I'm right handed & have used a spade pretty often. It is extremely awkward to switch handings....you'd only do it if space dictated it. Maybe tho she's truly ambidextrous......I worked with a guy once who was....graeme
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
To add to the confusion Hayley also holds the mircophone in her left hand. Put us out of our misery Roger!!
As far as I know, Hayley is basically right-handed. Yes, she does invariably hold the microphone in her left, but that may be because she likes to keep her dominant hand free to make visual expressions by holding it out while she is singing.
At the precise moment when the photograph was taken of her holding a spade, she may well have moved it over to her left hand because of the child to her right. I wasn't paying attention when she was actually digging, so I'll probably get detention from the headmaster now!
The first of those two pictures don't necessarily prove anything but the last two indicate that she is at least equally comfortable left-handed. I expect someone will ask her one day. Meanwhile, I suspect this discussion was just a ploy to see a few more pictures! I'm glad it worked!
