I was born on May 18th 1968 the oldest of four and lived a normal family life.
I left school at seventeen and went onto further education to become a Quantity Surveyor. I started my first job with a national house builder in 1988 and joined the big wide world, being paid and contributing national insurance and tax. I was enjoying my job and life itself. In 1990 I moved to another job and life carried on at is usual pace. In 1994 I left home and moved into a 3-bedroom semi detached house with my girlfriend who I met at my first job. We went through the usual decorating and bill paying problems and the fact that my girlfriend was made redundant not long after us moving in. After work I would go to the gym and work out, doing this four times a week.
Life carried on and no signs were given of what was coming……………………
Over the next few months a random blog will appear, telling the experience of that day, week or month. There will also be some video clips popping up along the way, certificate 18 in places, just because of the swearing. This is more about me signing off 25 years since I was forced to take a very different footpath to the one I had imagined, If you find them interesting or funny along the way then that’s great.
It’s been a roller coaster of a journey, with ups, downs, twists and turns…….It’s been 25 years!
