So, last week was my birthday: 21 again, and more.
Where was I on that day of the year…?
- 10 years ago: Doing pgce teacher training in Middlesbrough. Not my cup of tea. Ler’s just leave it at that.
- 20 years ago: Started my first ever permanent job, working in the International Programme Liaison team at Mercury Communications Ltd. I did a lot of telecoms courses in that year.
- 30 years ago: At sixth form college in Middesbrough, re-sitting my O-levels. That was where I started studying Russian.
- 40 years ago: At Wolfenbüttel Primary School, near the East-West German border, being sent to the headmaster’s office to take a phone call from my Dad, then stationed at HMP Maze, Northern Ireland, to wish me happy birthday.
Have a nostalgic day, won’t you!
