Where was I...?

Where was I...

1 hour ago: Still sitting at my desk at home, updating livejournal

1 day ago: Slobbing on the sofa with mr.ncot in our usual Friday evening style - enjoying feeling baby kick, not enjoying being a stranded, out of breath, hippo!

6 months ago: Getting used to being pregnant, in the cold winter January of Zürich. Starting the year with so many hopes, fears and expections of the year ahead.

1 year ago: I was working at the Uetlihof office, getting ready to move to Bederstrasse, enjoying the summer and getting ready to go to Brussels to celebrate Mags and Mano's wedding. At the same time, I was in a lot of pain and sadness about our inability to get pregnant.

5 years ago: I hadn't yet started writing in livejournal. It was August 2004 and it was the original deadline for my masters thesis, but I was still 18 months away from completion. I was pretty lonely in Zurich, Alan was working full time, I was trying to study, but me heart was still in London. I was exploring Zurich, climbing the Uetliberg, completing the lake swim, and wondering what our future in Zurich would hold.

10 years ago: July 1999 - hmm, living and working in the south east. I think I was working for Sunrise Software then as a technical consultant, installing software, project management, IT Training, driving round the country and I think Alan and I were living together, either in Reading or perhaps we had already moved to North London. I was already planning to ask him to marry me the following Feb 29, 2000!
