Hey Guys, I hope you are well. I notice how everyone is taking part in a 10 years challenge. I thought I share a post on here for my 10-year challenge.
So 2009! Two major things happened in 2009.
My baby sister was born
I was shocked when my mum told me she was pregnant at 38 years old. I was very excited that I was going to be a big sister again (I have a younger brother who is 5 years younger than me). Such a huge age gap. When Mia was born, I was so happy. It felt like she was my child.
Baby doll was my all time favourite toys to play with as a little girl. I was obsessed with baby dolls. I even had a collection of Babyborn brand, the complete sets – baby clothes, buggy, bottles, nappies etc. So you can imagine how excited I was when my sister was born. Can’t believe she will be 10 this year.
I got my first apartment
I moved out of my parents home and lived in student accommodation at 16 years old. I had a great time living there when the lease was over, I was so sad. I loved living alone and doing whatever, whenever I wanted. I had just a small room, but I felt like a queen in her castle. The whole building was mine. Partying day and night with friends, no cooking, just go out for breakfast, lunch and dinner, sleepovers etc.
Moving back to be parents was heartbreaking. I was sad and miserable. I started job hunting and apartment, basement, flatshare – anything. So when my mum had my sister, I knew I just had to leave. We had a three bedroom house and with the baby here, I was the eldest, I just knew it was time.
It took me 3 months after that to get a place. I love it. It was a perfect size, it had a walk-in wardrobe, the bedroom was like a kingsize room, spacious living room – It was just perfect. Love at first sight. I lived happily ever after until Sasha was born.
