I was listening to the radio this morning (BBC Radio 5 live) and the DJ was asking what we were listening to in 1987.

In 1987, I was 10 years old! (Now you know how old I am..) I was listening to Rick Astley and New Kids on the Block! hehe.

I was in Primary 4 then and I remembered clearly that it was the year I first failed a test! I got 49/100 for mathematics. I was very sad because I think my mum would be disappointed with me and I brought shame to my family! LOL!

My mum found me a private maths tutor. My tutor was great and I learnt to enjoy doing maths sums. I went on to score As for Elementary and Advanced maths for my O’levels!! The tutor now teaches my 13 year old niece!

I can’t remember what else happened in 1987 cos it was so long ago… I was probably causing trouble at school and at home…

Do you remember what you were doing in 1987?
