Worryingly some of the younger ages on here I could only find referenced under Arcaeology/Prehistoric in my personal archive of my life.... :shock:

This thread is three years old... I think I'm a little older now... let's say mid-fifties. I can't get away with early-fifties any more.

I'm 41 and a bit - which is a great age, as it's the exact same age as the universe.

45. Although the years between 16 and 43 don't count as I didn't have a Beeb. I guess that makes me 18 in Beeb years? :^o
