In 2001 I was living in Coventry. I had been working as a writer for seven years, but I had recently taken a full time job at Becta. I had two children aged 11 and 8. H was working in Sheffield during the week at the University for Industry.
In 1991 I had just left my ex to move in with H, and I had an 18 month old baby. I lived in a rented house in Hanwell in West London and worked as Lecturer in Further Education.
In 1981 I was studying Philosophy at the University of Warwick. I was living near anarchy bridge in central Coventry. Strange days indeed.
In 1971 I was living in a council house in Sutton Coldfield. My father was disabled, and we were poor.
In 1961 I was in my mummy's tummy. She was living in the back bedroom of my grandma's house, in Birmingham, and my dad was doing National Service.
