Quick: What were you doing ten, twenty and thirty years ago?
Ten years ago–
I was 27. I was living in Auckland with my daughter (then 5) and My Trier 2. I was involved in a playgroup there. I was in the midst of arguing with the doctor that something was wrong with my son. It took another year for him to send me to the hearing clinic where we advised to start speech therapy. I was a solo mum for the 2nd time after having left my 1st abusive relationship a year ago.
I was 17 🙂 I had left school this year. I was working in a plant nursery. Had a crush on a truck driver there and had what I will always class as my first real friend Carina. (She was murdered 3 years later). I remember the 1st week working there she came up to me and told me that working full time did get easier. Bless her. I also was taking driving lessons to get my car license. I had many many lessons – cost me a fortune – but finally I got my license.
Thirty years ago–
I was 7. I hated school. I was picked on right from the beginning. I remember one girl in particular who would pinch me and would threaten me that shed get her older brother to come and sort me out too.
I tag who ever is reading this and is 30 years old or
older be truthful 🙂
Here’s the idea, post your own 10-20-30’s, tag some friends, and link back to Mary DeMuth’s releventblog post.
