I just got to thinking about this this week, because to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee in our school, each class is studying a decade of the Queen's reign and producing a banner to be hung in church and a hall display about it. And my class were quite randomly assigned the 1990s.

When I sat down and thought about the 1990s my first thought was Britpop, and I dragged all my CDs out. I remember concerts I myself went to, and "big" events I got involved in, such as voting for Tony Blair to be PM and signing a book of condolence in Manchester Cathedral when Princess Diana died. I got quite teary sharing some of the music with my class. It brought back all sorts of memories of my student years, my first love, and my brother who is currently estranged from our family.

And I am now thinking/feeling that the 1990s was "my" era. The time when I was really up on the fashion, current events, music scene and general zeitgeist of the time. When I was most connected and involved in the world.

What about you? Sorry it's a bit random!

Id be 90's too. I remember going to the school discos in my Joe Bloggs jeans thinking i was the bizz, going to school with the skirt up were i would never wear a skirt now, with platform shoes. I would always wear a bump in the front of my hair. Spending summers with my friends eyeing up whom ever caught our eye that summer. Then in 96 i started college and living for either our tuesday or thursday night out in a nightclub called 'Gorbys' which sold drinks for 99p, then either wednesday or friday depending on whichever was our night out, we would be sick as a dog all day in college, but that was our norm for the two years of college.
Then in April of 2000 i got my first real grown up job and settled a bit and in december of that year i met DH, so i would say for the wild and fun years, the 90's were definatly it, then the 2000's were fun but in a different more grown up way.

Forever missing my 3 angel babies: Harry, Ewan, and Audrey.
I am at one with God and with Nature. I feel my oneness with absolutely everything.
