In the mood for more dredging up the past I logged on to Friends Reunited which I had spotted somewhere.
I was amazed to find both my schools listed with people I actually remembered. I could even picture some of them. Following that I even found a website for the village where I grew up with a pen portrait of growing up in the 60s. Must persuade G to post photos and write something. She will love it.
Even found the girl who lived next door.
Also tracked down first university and work places but could not find Birmingham and Surrey Universities so cannot seem as clever as I really am :). Amazing how you can still put faces to names after all this time.
From the same site I also went to GenesReunited, which allows you to search for relatives and produces a family tree. It will be one-sided in our case, as it didn't do much outside the UK.
Too mean to subscribe at the moment but no doubt G will be interested to join to get messages from the past. Still 10 quid is not a lot for each of them.
Not really sure I want to contact people though, especially at the moment when "who I am" is so unclear. Must write something about Status Anxiety.
