Get to know people better meme

I was tagged by Tamzen for this one and it tickled my fancy early in the morning, so I’m going to go for it.

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
I really had to think about this one – given that I switched jobs every couple of years, it’s not that surprising. I was working for a publishing company who no longer exist called Two-Can on a kids newspaper supplement called Young Telegraph for the Telegraph newspaper that also no longer exists.

I was living in St Albans in a small two-bedroomed terraced house with my ex-wife and things were, generally, OK – although I was earning a pittance.
