Who to tag? I do not usually like this bit! Plus, I expect by now most people have done it!
Have you done it?


Right, you are it!* (Tig tigging no returns).

    Oh, I really want some eggs with runny yolks. And some soft goat's cheese.

    You lived in Cheltenham? We're in Stroud, which isn't too far away.

    I always wanted cheesecake whilst pregnant but since giving birth I haven't wanted it! Weird…

    I was tagged by Doug a while ago.

    I finally managed to get it done after days of trying!

    What were you doing 10 years ago?

    Hmmm, 10 years ago. 29th March 1996. I was 17.
    Trying to decide which University to choose and having as much fun as was humanly possible. Can’t remember what else (or who else!!!). It was all a blur of music, recreational drugs and great times back then!

    What were you doing 5 years ago?

    Hmmm, 5 years ago. 29th March 2001. I was 22.
    Moved to Brighton 9 months ago. Working at P&H with Adam. Still a bit of a blur with the recreational drugs thing. Getting old and weary and beginning to wish that it wasn’t part of my life anymore. Realising that if I wanted to change my life I would have to end my relationship. Stuggling to get my head around the fact my boyfriend was bi-sexual. Realising that our 4 year relationship was at the beginning of the end. Trying to decide whether to stay in Brighton or whether I should run back home.

    What were you doing 1 year ago?

    Hmmm, 1 year ago. 29th March 2005. I was 26.
    Probably exactly where I am now. At work. It was a Tuesday which must have sucked. I was looking forward to my holiday with the girls to Tenerife.
