I’ve been back in New Plymouth for just over 9 years now – the only reason I know how many years it is is because of Hartleigh – honestly if you asked me I’d say 4-5 years at the most – the time as flown! Hart is going to be NINE on Saturday. the last of the single digits for my June 2005 baby.
I thought it might be a good time to do a bit of a review of the past nine years.
I moved home (to Taranaki)
I had a baby
I got divorced
I bought a house
I put on weight (a lot as it turns out)
I sold the house (and lost more money than I can deal)
I lost the weight
I fell in love
I fell out of love
I got a tattoo (after 19 years of deliberation!)
I found some fantastic new friends
I’ve said goodbye to some who should still be here
I fell in love again
I resigned myself to the fact that insomnia is now my friend
I still fail at most parts of my life
I have succeeded in places I never thought I would
I know I’m not the person I want to be but I’m going to keep trying to get there because it’s the least I can do for Hart. Protect him from making my mistakes. If only!
