While on Facebook, I was discussing with friends how their 2009 had been. My assessment of my year was “a year of niggly irritations”. Nothing huge had gone wrong, just loads of little things. Cars, crops, prices, recession, exchange rate, you name it.
Then I was asked about the decade. Not much has been made of the fact that as of tomorrow, we are in a new decade!
Where was I 10 years ago? Suffolk. Working in IT and loving it. Earning the big bucks, as they say! Just about to host our millennium NYE party for friends and family. Not a thought in my head about moving, leaving England, becoming a farmer.
And since? What has the decade brought? Huge change. Daughter married, then not. Death – a mother, an aunt, a father-in-law. 2 dogs die, 2 others take their place.
Change of country. Change of scenery. Change of weather. Change of job. Change of focus. Change of interests. Outdoors, not indoors. From big house with small land to small house with big land. New businesses. Speak Spanish, not English.
How about you?
