Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?
Well when I read today’s prompt, my initial thought was ‘crap I can’t even remember what year I’m in now, let alone a random year from the past’ so to be honest I didn’t think that I would be posting today! But just for curiosity I thought I wonder what year it would be? So of cause I wouldn’t have money down the sofa because I’m an OCD in practise, and it is to cold to go out to the car, the purse it was then. And the picture above is the first coin I pulled out and I can’t believe what year it was… The year 2000
So much happened in this year, probably the most significant year I had had up to that point!
This was the year because of my unhappy first marriage and to add some excitement to my life I dragged two young children in their pushchair up to London to see the millennium in on the embankment and then had to sleep on paddington station floor with a three and five year old waiting for the first train back to Devon because I couldn’t afford a room for the night!
This was the year after about eleven years of being with someone, one Monday morning in January I packed a suitcase, took the boys and left my marriage and home.
This was the year I moved into a new house as a single mother for the first time.
This was the year I meet my new OH and started a new adventure with them.
This was the year my youngest had his birthday party at my new house, dressed up as ‘woody’ and was so horrible I said I was never going to have a party for him again.
This was the year I adopted a dog and got a kitten, as if I didn’t have enough to do!
This was the year I had my first of many holidays abroad. Since then I have been all over the world to the most beautiful of places.
So as you can see the year 2000 was the year my life began at the age of 29! X
