    Aw... I feel like a grandad. I was 18. It was the summer just before I went to Uni. The long summer, full of youthful promise...

    I know the feeling... I was 17 and if memory serves, working on a roller skating rink or an ice cream parlour at the rinks entrance...

    I also remember sweating my A-level mock results which were appalling when they came out...

    Oh the memories... [Delete] [Delete] [Dang this button doesn't work!]
