So it's been 25 years. I was listening this morning to an item about the miners' strike - 25 years ago. I hadn't realised, any more than several of the miners' wives who were speaking. Ok, I'm not married to a miner, but that year - 1984 - was Orwellian in its strangeness, retrospectively. And so many things happened which did involve me that I'm going to do a bit of retrospective blogging. I've fished out some photos of significant places and incidents, and when I've scanned them I shall have a bash at some posts about the year that so many things changed for ever.
Watch this space.
