  • Sunday Times Magazine 3/5/09 1989 special

    I have just seen an advert on tv that the Sunday Times magazine this week will be a special edition looking back to the events of 1989 such as the fall of the Berlin Wall, glasnost and the warmest summer since 1976 apparently.

    Might be interesting reading

    Definitely. Must remember to grab one on my way into work in the morning. 1989, can't believe it's 20 years ago! That's the year I left school!! Suddenly I feel distinctly middle aged!!

        Shocking isn't it? I left school on June 15th 1989 and started work on the 16th. A day off might have been nice!!!

            What was your first job? Mine was at Surrey Uni, working for the Associated Examining Board as a secretary in an office with 3 50-something ladies. Not ideal.... I couldn't even lie about my exam results as they knew them before I did!!

              Just doing admin work on a casual basis for the local council.

              We have a thread on first jobs here, might be worth adding to that one too
