  5. Its the end of a decade....what's happened to you these last 10 years

Its the end of a decade....what's happened to you these last 10 years Lock Rss

Just going through a mental list of things that have happened to me & my family these last 10 years....

I've had two Aunties pass
I've grieved with one of my best friends at the loss of her sleeping baby
My mum & dad are still alive and well (78 & 80 respectively)
I've gained another niece & nephew
I've met, fallen in love, gotten engaged and married my amazing DH.
I gave birth to my first beautiful darling daughter Stella
I only months later gave birth to my second beautiful darling daughter Zara.

I have made and lost so many friendships this decade and experienced the loss of loved ones.

I cant imagine what this next decade will bring but I hope I can hold on tight....the roller coaster is about to start!!!

Anyone else care to share what they've been through???

Lost all 4 grandparents
Had my children
Got married & divorced
Moved houses too many times to count
Went through family law courts twice both for extended periods
