9:15 AM - For my friends...

The great thing about moving house so much and keeping our things in storage is my most beloved possession (OK, after my bikes and my skis) keeps resurfacing unexpectedly and its contents recur as a complete surprise every year or so. This possession, virtually valueless as a thing is also something you can't put a price on. A compact disc full of memories. MY FILE.

Not only does it contain pictures of some of the most important people in my life, the people who shaped my life in more ways than I can explain, it also contains pictures of me that, believe it or not, make me think about the ravages of time.

I wouldn't say I hardly recognize University-me because I know it's me but there are no creases in my skin (and it's not just that I was fatter). I also think I looked pretty hot with long hair back then. Then I realize it's not my hair, it's usually Adam's lovely curly locks, the kind of curls my hair would never dream of producing.

The majority of the pictures come from the perpetrators, the Dans and the Beckys, the Chrises and the Tracys and then there's the Adams and the Lucys, the Fi & Tim. Our wedding day, the pictures I that I haven't got memorized yet. Then there's the Viv and Rick, Rob Greene, the wonderful Black and Whites taken by Becky's Steve, people whose names I hardly remember and a picture of fat Rob in his Pants which, more than anything, I remember for being the only thing to make me laugh long and hard whilst I was in Crewe. SO my loves, you are all stars of my screensaver movie now. My Halman Profile is proudly displayed on my office notice board. I expect ALL my employees to be calling me Sir very soon. If not that then Binty will suffice.

Last night we went out for family celebration and I wore a skirt because I found one and I found heels. I looked like a girl for the first time in 6 months and got free desert from the Inn. Happy.
