Did Freddie ever cook at home.?

The answer to this is a definite NO! I’m sure he must have been able to do something in the kitchen but cooking wasn’t it. He felt all of us were on this earth for a reason, some drive, some cook, but he made music. I’ve told this story before but it’s so funny.

One night, Freddie told me to go to bed early; it must have been around 2 am. I sorted out drinks for him and his friends and went to my room which was above the kitchen at that time. I heard a knock on the door and looked at the time… 4 am. It was Freddie very sheepishly saying, ′I want to make a cup of tea for someone, but I can’t make the microwave work.’ My immediate question was, ‘Why don’t you put the kettle on?’ Of course , I got up and I made tea.
