Topic : 10 years ago - what were you doing?
JulieKidspot - `10` `2012-08-15 11:19:33`  
We've had this topic before but I just realised it is already two years old - how time flies!

Think back to 2002, what were you doing? Where were you living? How has life changed for you in the last 10 years?

10 years ago I was single, trim and toned, enjoyed going out to the bars/restaurants and had a good job.  Wouldn't go back to that life now though ..... except for the trim and toned bit

August 2002 my hubby and I were still in India, been married for around 6 months, still in the honeymoon phase! I was working then, we had lots of couple time, enjoyed eating out, movies, shopping and traveling! Life has changed so much since then...I had my son, we moved to NZ, I became a full time mum, we moved into our current home and soon my daughter arrived! Life revolves around the kids, hubby and home now but I'm definitely happier than I was then! :)

We were still living in the Philippines, Cebu to be precise. But this time 10 years ago, we were in Manila. My mom passed away on the 10th of August, was buried on the 14th. My husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on the 15th by dining out. We only had 1 child then, who was almost 2 years old. Was still breastfeeding him then and was a full time mum.

I was having the most wonderful time as a stay at home mum 10 years ago.  My son was nearly 3 and my daughter was 6 months old - it was truly the best time of my life!  I only got 14 months of it before our finances meant I had to go back to work and DH got to stay home, a situation that neither of us particularly wanted.

10 years ago I was teaching full-time, in a marriage I hated to someone who did nothing all day except sleep and watch tv. My life has changed so much since then and definitely for the better.

I was living out of NZ and working full-time.  My son was 3 yrs old and hubby worked overseas.  Life was good but family was priority.  Fast-track, we moved here to NZ altogether, had 2 more kids.  Its just pure joy to see my kids grow with their dad around and me being a full-time mum.

I was in high school, no doubt studying for exams..... what a carefree life, but however as easier as it was, I wouldn't change a thing (except maybe I would of studied harder LOL)

my eldest son was about 6 months old. I was home, bored. lonely and counting the days until I could go back to work. Funny how things change.

10 years ago I had just shifted into this house, with a plan of being out of here and in a bigger place in 10 years time..... im still here with a new 10 year plan :P

I was working in a daycare centre and had just enrolled at teachers training college.

I had two kids 10 years ago, then aged 4 and 21 months.


Julie is it really two years since we did this topic last!?!

2002, I was flatting in Wellington with a good friend of mine, great job, good money, great friends, no man, no kids, no troubles!lol

In 2002 I had just had my eldest child and realised how much of a life-change it is to be responsible for someone 24/7! My baby would have been 2 months old and I would be dreading 10pm each night as I dealt with a colicky baby. I was still living in the UK.
