Then I lived in Belfast, specifically at 32 Serpentine Parade
Now in Oud-Heverlee, near Leuven
Was I happy then? Yes, though uncertain of the future
Am I happy now? Yes
Kids then 0, though B was on her way by end of the year
Kids now 3
If you ask, I will give you a year.

Re: 1982!
I confess I did a little research. You wouldn't have wanted me to pick a boring year, would you?

Re: 1982!
You certainly didn't. And I was so aroused by this challenge that I have it done and dusted and up on my own site.

Thanks - I enjoyed doing this.

Go on, then...

This sounds fun - if you pick a year I'll try to figure out what I was doing then.

Er, not how it works!

But if you want a year, have 1993!
