How this works:
You comment, I give you an age (please tell me how old you currently are - I don't know all of your ages unfortunately) and you fill out the meme questions with what applied to you back then, and now:

I have 26.

At 26...

I lived in:
Dargaville, at the end of a dead end road just out of town, on a 50 acre kumara farm. The YoT said his first words in that house, on my 26th birthday. We had junked out cars on the front lawn and I gave up trying to battle the kikuyu to make the garden pretty, or the junk to make the house tidy. It was a pig sty and I hated it. Luckily I left shortly after.

I drove:
A 1973 XB Fairmont with a 351 V8 in it. It cost about $10 to start it up, and when I tried to see how fast it could go on the Ruawai straights one day, I chickened out at 126mph. My husband pranged it into a ditch while drunk and dinged it up quite badkly, and after that I wasn't so keen on it. When I left him I swapped it for two cows.

I was in a relationship with:
My ex husband.

I feared:
Going to bed.

I worked at:
I was stay at home Mum, which basically meant I did a lot of cooking and cleaning and also I was responsible for waking up said husband each morning which was no mean feat.

I wanted to be:
Anywhere except where I was.

NOW! (45years old)

I live in:
Wellington, in an art deco rental that has lovely views and is stunning in summer and like living in a refrigerator in winter. My vegie garden feeds me horse food daily and we have flowers. I made a rule that I would never tolerate junked out cars on the lawn again and I've stuck to it. The YoT is 20 and has moved out Wow.

I drive:
I recently pranged my Galant, and it was replaced by the people we car share with, with a Honda Jazz (affectionately known as The Granny Car). Dr Wheel and I are about to buy a ute, because we're hardcore like that, and also because we don't want to get caught out unable to pull our trailer up the hill out of Kiwiburn again.

I'm in a relationship with:
Dr Wheel. He is the awesomest of the awesomes. 7 years this December.

I fear:
Complacency.

I work at:
Writing qualifications for builders, drug reform, organising a festival, acro, pole, and being a better person.

I want to be:
Independently wealthy so I can live in the country and grow fruit and vegies and flowers and breed The Better Sheep.

Oh, what fun! That car story is just heartbreaking though. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to find out at what speed I chicken out when I finally get to race my Chevelle. We have similar current life wants, only mine has less sheep and more art.

I'm currently 45 (please, no age below 13 because my childhood memories are super fuzzy).

Oh, wait! I thought you had asked me for an age...I saw this pop up in my email notifications and didn't bother checking whose actual post it was...
