I now leave you to your regular programming while I frighten the cats by running round in circles going whee!

oursin gave me 35. Comment if you would like an age (the convention is, leave your current age, but if you want to risk futurology, feel free).
I lived in: my own house in a small North Wiltshire town.
I drove: A new white Astra, a company car. I learned to drive in London, but it never made sense to own a car there; when I moved out to the sticks it was (and is) a different matter, especially as the company expected me to travel to far-flung parts of England and Wales regularly.
I was in a relationship with: a cat (of course). Plus I assume the lodger counts? He started staying with me during the week when I bought the house, and is still around on and off 22 years later...
I feared: I can't remember. Not much, I suspect...
I worked at: the IT department of a large recently privatised electricity generator. Lots of money being thrown at making (one of ) Maggie Thatcher's spectacularly bad ideas seem like a success. Lots of technical innovation. Melting pot of employees and consultants and contractors, all having the time of their life. It was great fun, even if we were working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day...
I wanted to be: What I was. Except there wasn't any time to write as well...
I live in: my own house in a small village on the Gloucestershire/Wiltshire border.
I drive: A 10 year old Audi.
I'm in a relationship: A cat. Plus the aforementioned lodger.
I fear: the consequences of the bad decisions being made by Thatcher's successors.
I work at: being retired, writing software, getting back to writing books.
I want to be: Right where I am, except with a cat who doesn't need daily medical attention, so I can get about a bit more.
