Indeed Happy New Decade .. out of the noughties into 2010/11/12/13 etc ... what are they to be called ?? Will 2010/11/12 be 'the pre teenies' and the rest 'the teenies'?
The past 10 years have gone by so quickly. It only seems like yesterday that Teen (when she was nowhere near a Teen) and I celebrated the birth of the Millennium in a friend's Mums cottage in a remote part of Wales with some very dear friends and we watched the New Year coming in across the World.
Do you remember the panic that the press would have us believe that all computers would crash etc ... seems so farcical now ... actually it seemed farcical then lol.
So what has happened in my life these past 10 years? I won't dwell on the very sad stuff that has happened as that is not me ... so I have......
~ watched my Teen grow into a gorgeous teenager
~ changed my career (that is a bit like the curates egg!!)
~ got divorced
~ bought a car from brand new on the day of a new registration release (ahh that new car smell)
~ got some wrinkles and grey hairs ... tsk!
~ bought a King Charles spaniel
~ had to do a hard thing and have one of my cats put to sleep
~ travelled across France, Germany and Spain on a train
~ bought a share in a hotel in Germany (any takers to take this off my hands would be
~ had my first photography exhibition
~ loved and lost (but better to have loved than to have never loved at all!)
~ gained far too many pounds (part of the change of career.. sat behind a desk all day)
~ hit my 40s
~ found and met new cousins through doing my family tree
~ found and met new friends through blogging
~ had oodles of fun
~ laughed a lot
~ loved every minute of it
So here is to the next 10 years and beyond (Blimey at the next decade I will be looking at retirement ... shudder!! ;-) )
Happy New Year ... and Health, Wealth and much Happiness
