Our Decade, 2010-2019

We're heading into 2020 and I'm feeling quite sad. Not sure about anyone else but I always get a little sad at the end of each year. I always catch myself sitting at the end of my bed, reading through my yearly diary and just think back to all those memories we have made. I have always said, no matter how bad things were, the positives always out do the negatives. However, this year feels slightly different. I feel a lot more sad heading into a brand new year and a brand new decade because one of the most important people in my life won't be joining us.

My Nain sadly passed away at the end of August and anyone who has lost someone who was very close, will probably understand how I feel. Grief is something that won't go away and I'm learning new things every single day. I'm not heading into the new year with resolutions this year, but my only 'goal' this year to hit is to smash what I want to do and be that strong person my Nain always was.

Although I'm finding it pretty tough right now, I have still liked to go through the past 10 years and I thought, why not just share it here with you all too.

2010 saw me raising my eldest daughter on my own. It was a very tough journey. I went down some dark roads but rose up again. Not only that, but I also got my first job as a Nursery Assistant 5 months into the new year.

2011 was the year where my life really started to change. I met my current partner, fell pregnant and moved from my childhood home to live in the village where my partner lives.

2012 was the year I gave birth to my second daughter. We also moved to our second rented home. It was a tough year mental health-wise. It was also a sad year, my Great Nain passed away two weeks after my daughter was born.

2013 was the year I started my little space on the internet, this blog - Life as Mum. This blog is one of the things I am so proud of. I've learnt so much over the years. This year was also the year my middle got christened.

2014 was the year I climbed Snowdon. It was bloody tough, but I am so proud of myself that I did it. This was also the year that we bought our first home.

2015 was the year my little family and I went on our first holiday abroad together. We went to Thailand for three weeks, it was absolutely amazing. Another amazing news was, I found out I was expecting my third baby.

2016 was the year I gave birth to my baby boy.

2017 was the year our breastfeeding journey came to an end. It was also the year full of adventures and memories too.

2018 was the year my partner travelled around New Zealand and Freddie saw snow for the first time.

2019 was a huge year for me. In February I got myself a job as a retail assistant and I'm still there. It changed my life, a lot. Something else that changed my whole life, was losing my beautiful Nain. I can't even begin to explain how much I miss her.

What was your decade like?
