what were you doing ...

She Weevil has tagged me for a meme ... . Tag yourself in the comments so that we can come and visit you, if you want to join in.

What were you doing ten years ago?
I had just moved to Penarth on the outskirts of Cardiff and started a job as a GIS Software Engineer for BT. There were four people in our team; an Evangelical, an Atheist, a Jehovah's Witness and a Spiritualist. We had some pretty interesting conversations. I'd just started dating Crazy Tom and was commuting on a regular basis from Cardiff to Canterbury.

What were you doing one year ago?
We were just coming to the conclusion that fertility treatment was not the way forward for us. I was deciding whether to have a go at life without SSRIs and see how I felt. We were thinking about buying an office, with a flat up above it that we could rent out to support the mortgage, rather than continuing to work at home. We had just started taking in lodgers.

Five snacks you enjoy:
1. Pickled onions
2. Prawn toast

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
1. Like She Weevil, buy a smallholding somewhere very, very remote. Probably not as remote as her Orkneys, though.
2. Buy a really, really fast, very very small laptop and upgrade it every twelve months
3. Give some nice wodges of it away
4. Err ... I think that's probably it
5. ....

Five things you like doing:
