Thank you Gooseflesh for the tag. It's Sunday morning so I have lots of time to think and Archie is here too in case of memory failure. I've also added a photo or two from the family archives. That's me with the rabbit and my father Tom, and brother, Tom in the other shot.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I had just qualified as a Social Worker and was working in a Day Centre with people who have chronic and enduring mental health problems. In a lovely piece of serendipity, I had moved back to the area my family came from and my office was right across the road from the building where my grandmother had worked as a District Nurse many years before.
What were you doing 1 year ago?
Quite possibly sitting on the very same sofa as I am now.
Five snacks you enjoy:
Crisps ( chips ), bread, chocolate - either the posh extra dark stuff or just a Mars Bar, proper chips eaten from Marco's chippie in Arbroath, biscuits and cheese.
