Regina tagged me with this meme a while back – so here goes, I hope my memory serves me correctly!
10 years ago:
We were living near to Pietermaritzburg, in the little town that I did most of my growing up in. I was working part-time in my father’s accounting business (some things never change.) Paula was two years old, so she was keeping me very busy! Roxy was 7 years old and she was attending a lovely little private school, where she was having the time of her life. Grant was working in real estate. It was a busy, but good time in our lives.

I was working at a bank in that same little town. Grant was doing his compulsory national service (army training!) It was not a good time for us! Although I have to say that I really enjoyed working in the bank, which is quite surprising, being an introvert by nature, I imagined I would find it very difficult being in a service industry. Funnily enough I took to it straight away. I worked in the bank until Rox was 6 months old and then I realised that working long hours was not conducive to being a mommy.
30 years ago:
Now we are talking ancient history! I was 9 years old. My mother had recently married her 3rd husband (I have a Much Married Mother!) so I was on Daddy Number 3 at the age of nine! Luckily for me, I have had 2 wonderful step-fathers, so I emerged from my childhood relatively unscathed. We were living in Durban at that time. My best friend, Lisa, and I spent every waking moment together. (Lisa and I are still close, although she now lives in the UK – I’m seeing her in less than a month, I can’t wait!) We went to school, visited at each other’s houses, swam, talked non-stop, I went to dancing lessons and with the rest of my time I read lots and lots of books.
So that’s my history, in a nutshell! Whoever reads this and would like to do this meme, consider yourself tagged!
