  1. Love the image of you in number 13. And I love reminiscing. So interesting to think how you've changed. You could make this a link y..
    Enjoyed your R2BC as well.

  2. This got me thinking... 21 years ago I was in the RAF, had big hair ( still do unfortunately), had just meet what is now my OH, and without being married or having any children was free to do what I wanted!!!! Oh those were the days :)

  3. 19 years for me, then... What a great idea for a roundup! As for #21, well, we can't all be Rachel Weisz, and we should be happy for that :)
