#Architalks #37 #WhatwasIthinking?

The journey I have made to get to where I am now (apologies for using the ubiquitous ‘Pop Idol’ – ‘journey’) has been an interesting one.

Spanning many different jobs. In many different sectors. Starting as a small boy wanting to be an architect through to doing a myriad of different occupations over many years until returning to what I’d always wanted to be over fifty years later.

I also went through the obligatory myriad of hairstyles – including hair colour. Probably the worst phase was when I decided it was a great idea to have a pony-tail and dye my hair blond. The result was more of a rat’s tail and the colour was more bright orange than surfer blond!

And the one overriding thing I think looking back at that time regarding that period was ‘WHAT WAS I THINKING?’

And then what was more amazing is that I actually met someone incredible whilst still with a ponytail (the colour grew out thank god) and that on May 1st I’ll have been married to that incredible woman for 25 years exactly:
