So the decade has passed (too soon, as usual). It has, and always, will be significant for me. Here are 10 things that I shall, and choose, to remember the decade by.

What were your 10 most memorable moments?

I don't remember this but The Youngest swears I once told her that stretch marks (the ones on the sides of her legs) would eventually split open and bleed. It must have been really long ago; and she must have been really young and naive then. Laugh.

The new organisation chart has begun to ink itself into our visual consciousness, and no longer just talk.

It's going to be a busy, busy year.

This year, I will:

1) "high five the person sitting next to me" (heh);

2) "throw a dinner party" (erm);

3) "go back to school" (yeah);

4) "be happy and healthy" (yeah);

5) "play the kazoo" (whaaattt???)

And I do suppose I should add too:

6) start borrowing books from the national library instead - because I'm running out of space to keep books;

7) sleeping earlier - because I need to;

8) take more chances - because I missed too many;

9) not be afraid - because I always am; and

10) spread more kindness - because the world needs it, so much.
