Another meme: [via]. Warning! personal "stuff" alert!

What I was doing 10 years ago....
In 1995 I was 18 and just starting university to do a psychology degree. On the down side, I got married in September 1995 to the bane of my life, so that wasn't such a happy time really. In 1995 I got my A-level results, and remember realising that I wasn't as infallible as I had previously thought (due to not getting the top grades I'd hoped for). Also in 1995 my eating started to go a bit haywire (probably due to a combination of all of the three above).

5 years ago......
In 2000 I was waitressing in a restaurant, a job which I hated. I felt that my life was going nowhere, eating problems had re-appeared yet again, all in all not a great year for me.

1 year ago......
Aah this is where it gets a bit better! Last year I was working in my first 'proper' job as a qualified nurse, money was coming in, I was pretty happy all round. Got married (again, yes I know!) to the spicy Kosovan after 7 years of being together, and started trying for a baby (and the rest, they say, is history ;op)

Yesterday I went to town to meet a friend I haven't seen for ages for lunch. Unfortunately she was held up in the hairdresser's for AGES, so we ended up having a sandwich in there (instead of the nice restaurants I had imagined!) and went for a coffee. She asked about my plans for the birth of the baby (including pain relief), and got a bit huffed when I said I was aiming for as little pain relief as possible. She said 'well I wanted an epidural and everything they could give me, and I don't think it makes me any less of a woman'... hmm touchy. So that was a bit of a conversation-stopper, and I made a sharp exit shortly afterwards.
