    27; and had been married for 4 years. No idea what... Strike that, seeing how I'm wearing the now "decorating only" tee shirt, I see I was lighting a production of Grease. The most memorable bit was getting the car up to the stage; first floor level, no ramps!

    Number One record at the time was:- Yazz & The Plastic Population, The Only Way Is Up

    Working up the courage to ask out a 16 year old girl who also had a summer job at the factory. Never did, though. Recently I met her younger sister (now in her 30's), and told her about it. She thought it was hilarious.

    I was 11 and about to start secondary school! I couldn't tell what I was doing on the exact day, but my lasting memory of the summer.

    Walking off with one of my mates to the secondary school in question - about a hour away - after my mum telling me not to leave the immediate area around the house. I arrived home over 2 hours later with a sun burnt neck and in a whole world of trouble

    I was 33 in 1988. Oh, if I knew them what I know now - I could have patented lots of things before they had been invented and made a fortune!

    For those who don't know, in China the number 8 is associated with prosperity and is the most auspicious of the numbers. Today's date, containing 3 of them is 3 times as auspicious.

    I was 3, almost 4. So was probably making a mess and injuring myself.

    I would have been just over 2 so doing what ever 2 year olds did, probably pulling something to bits knowing me, I've had this habbit of pulling anything and everything to bits since I was born.
