Used to

Twenty years ago...

My life was very different twenty years ago. I didn't live where I do now. I used to live in a big city but now I live in a tiny village. My job's different too. I'm now a teacher but I used to be an accountant. When I was an accountant, I used to spend loads of money on food and wine but now I can't. Teachers don't earn a lot of money. As a teacher I don't have to work long hours but I used to as an accountant. Holidays are different too. I used to go to luxury beach resorts. Now, I can only afford to go on local holidays.
