Sian said...

Wow, really made me think about being 17 in 2009..I'm glad you joined the train! And now you've got all your answers to look back on in years to come!

humel said...

So cool to compare your answers with mine :-)

Off to travel the rest of the way now! Thanks for driving us so safely ;-) x

Brilliant to have this record for later in your life. I really struggled to remember what I was doing at 17, although once I started things came back to me (although I may be a year or 2 out on somethings :D).

Really interesting to see what life is like for a 17 year old now.

Liberty :) said...

Great pics! You look so trendy next to the rest of us "old" 17 year olds!! ;)

Jay said...

Fabulous post, you make me feel soooooo old (my daughter is 17!). Those photos are amazing. Good luck with all your dreams for the future, and thanks for sharing your present.
Well, that's me done. The circle is complete. Back to the train to take me home.

Becky said...

Great post Abi - good luck with your driving!

Beverly said...

Loved having a young one participate :) make a habit of doing this every few years, you'll be glad when you are (much) older

I am following the 17 train - good to see that legwarmers, ugg boots and big cardis have made a comeback...

Lizzie said...

Hee hee.. I remember being 17 (I actually was 17 once!). I didn't learn to drive as I had no money, my favourite fashion was cheap stuff!!
It's interesting to hear from someone who is 17 now. I think you sound far more "together" than I was. I didn't have much of a clue what I was doing with my life!

Your photos are really nice. Good luck with the A level. Keri-anne was going to drop by some time...

Hope you enjoyed being the Train Driver - whoo whoo!

Lizzie said...

Hmm I thought I'd put a comment, but it has swallowed it!

It was good hearing from you - interesting how much more organised and "together" you seem to be than I was at 17.

Good luck with the driving lessons btw.

The photos are really nice - I hope your A level goes well. Keri-Anne was going to drop by some time...

Hope you enjoyed being Train Driver - woo-wooo!

It's so interesting to see your replies and compare them to how things were in years gone by.
Some of our replies must seem very amusing to you, maybe we should all do a '27' page and let you see what the future has in store!!!

Lovely photo of you at the end :) So interesting to compare your 17 with mine, makes me feel very old!
