Did the experience scar you for life?
Spent nearly three years living in a static caravan with the wife and our three kids while I built my house.
Walls were paper thin and our bed was about 3' 6" wide. Cosy you could call it!
I had to share a bedroom for years with my sister 3 years older than me. i hated very minute of it. the only time she was ever nice was when i had sweets. then she used to play doctors and patient with me and I had to feed her all my sweets as tablets. after the sweets had gone the game stopped. it took me years to suss her out.
I converted the attic in my house so my boys could each have their own bedroom.
I get on ok with my sister now but thats probably becasue we live 200 miles apart
Before she got lumbered with having to share with me, my sister, who is 5 years older, used to be quite cruel.
She knew I was scared of the dark, and would creep up the stairs, making just enough noise so that I'd know someon (or something.....) was coming.
I'd lie terrified in bed calling out "Mum, Dad, Anne, is that you??" She would say nothing....
Once, she even hid under my bed before I went to bed, then lay there and started making scratching noises once the light was off.
We do get on now, though. I see her maybe three or four times a year
Seren Nis- likewise, she's several hundred years away!
Wilkie- once, when my sister and I shared and my borther had his own room, we suddenly heard a very loud "boo" noise just when we had dropped off to sleep, it scared the life out of us. Turned out he had recorded the noise on a cassette somewhere towards the end of the tape, and put the recorder under my sister's bed...
What I hated most about growing up: I had to be in bed by 8pm until I was 15, even when I had my own room

You got a time machine Moomoo?
Could I borrow it to go back to the 80's?
There's a cd by Natalie Imbruglia which has a long gap between the penultimate song and the last one - several minutes.
I always forget, and it always makes me jump when after a few minutes of silence the last song starts.
I don't see myself getting to downloading that soon, moomoo.
And I still use a video recorder
