Matt has passed this onto me:
In an attempt to find out a bit more about each other, I decided a good way would be to ask “where were you?” 1 year, 5 years and 10 years ago…
It might take off, it might not – might be interesting, might be not…answer the questions, then send them on to three others!
From Burt originally. So here we go.
1 Year ago: Living in Beeston in a shared house working for Marconi as a telecommunications engineer specialising in SDH technology and Unix-based applications. Just started seeing a really nice lass. Everything is currently the same, although now Marconi is called Ericsson.
5 Years ago: Living in Heanor with my wife, working for Marconi. Having some success with my new Brass Band (Carlton Brass).
10 Years ago: Not yet married. Serving with the RAF at RAF Coningsby, working on the Airfield there. Living in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. About to be surprised by a posting to RAF Brize Norton near to Oxford, where I will be serving with Tactical Communications Wing. I’ll find that I’m going to be spending six months a year out of the country staying in shitty accomodation and eating crap. I’ll also love it to bits. I was a telecommunications technician – pretty much the same thing as I’m doing now, but with 1950s technology.
I just can’t get away from telecoms!
Anyway, the next in line are:
