Ten Years : 2010 to 2020

We have a new challenge doing the rounds called The Decade Tag.
Rory has tagged me for this, and you can check out his post here

Play Along Guidelines

Please share a link to the creator of the tag-jesusluvsall.wordpress.com

Share some highlights for you over the past decade and if you want, a few low points

 Tag whoever you wish to.

Ask them some questions

Use any picture appropriate for such a tag.

Going with the last guideline first, I’m going with Rory’s choice as it’s rather nice!
Highlights over the past decade:
Visiting Bro in NZ for two months in 2010.
Starting my blog in September 2013.
Buying the boat in 2014 and having almost three years as liveaboards.
Buying a (digital) piano after 4 years of not having one.
SIL’s visits from NZ
Celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary

Low Points:
The nightmare sale of the cottage in 2014
Health issues for all three of us, especially 2019
Getting breast cancer twice (but refusing to be defeated)
Losing Mum in 2018

Who to tag.
Rory has already nominated Sadje and Melanie, so I’m going to add

JP the Wide-eyed Wanderer

Teresa Grabs (so glad to see her back)


Paula of Light MotifsII

Barbara of teleportingweena


These are Rory’s questions to his selection of Taggettes

What have been your happiest moments between the years of January 2010 – Currently?
My NZ trip definitely and our time on the boat.

Do you think that in the last ten years all of your personality has come through or do you still think there is more to develop?
I have surprised myself this past year in particular with an inner strength I didn’t know I possessed. Maybe there are a few more layers of this onion to peel back.

Did you manage to tick off any ‘bucket list’ requirements over the last ten years – if so what were they?
Not exactly a bucket list, but I did have my trip to NZ.
Also I managed to reach my target weight last August and have stayed within the permitted parameters.

Did you have a good, bad, or fugly decade?
We are together, we faced it all together, we got through it together, we celebrated together, we laughed together, we cried together, we bitched together, but most of all, we enjoyed the good, confronted the bad, and swore at the ugly. 

Time for me to add some questions now.

Is there any year in the past decade that stands out as the best?

Has your taste in music changed in the past ten years or do you think music in general has changed?

Are you heavier or lighter than you were ten years ago?

How many cars have you owned in the past decade?

That’s it from me then.
Thanks again to Rory for the nod.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Thanks so much for the tag. I’ll see what I can do & make a post pretty soon. 🙂
    I liked reading your answers – what a wonderful experience visiting family in NZ! and Congratulations on your Silver Anniversary!

    • Our anniversary was the same year as my 60th, so we booked a room in a hotel for the night and our friend had Maggie for us.
      Bubble bath and strawberries……… wonderful!
      I’d love to go back and visit Bro, but we have other health issues to sort out first. Still, we ring each other so keep in touch.

    we have had several of the same issues over the last ten years. So glad we both came through them with a spirit of “this isn’t going to defeat me”.

  5. Hey Di, great answers – you and Hubbs did it all together – that’s the main thing 🙂

  6. Congratulations, Di! I loved reading your answers….You’re so blessed!
    I appreciate you nominating me for the following award, but… I’ going to politely decline at this time. This past decade is not really one I want to even think back on. However, I sincerely am grateful for thinking of me.
    God Bless you,
