So welcome to 1982 and Storrington in West Sussex. My name is Jo and I am 17 in 3 weeks. Only just made it as a 17 year old in 1982. Just to set the scene, this year Prince William was born, we went to war with the Argentines who invaded the Falkland Islands and we all watched Blue Peter with bated breath as they attempted to raise the Mary Rose in Portsmouth harbour. As it's nearly Xmas I'm hoping for the new Michael Jackson album Thriller and also for driving lessons.
