    What's been your best/most memorable moment this decade.

    As 2009 is drawing to a close i was wondering if anyone has had any special or memorable moments from the decade. Maybe getting married, or divorced. Getting your dream job, or being sacked.

    What's been your favourite song or film?

    ME TOO

    Unfortunaltly RIP it has to be 9/11 it sticks in my mind like a sour taste!

    Apart from that probably my education - 6th form and university? :-D

    For me it had to be our whole family holiday to Turkey

    In this decade I have met, feel in love with and got married to my beautiful wife, bought my first property, graduated and joined the Civil Service.

    Oh dear, what a horrible 10 years it has been!

    Only joking. This year has been particular good with a new puppy, job and a national award for my work with refugees

    yeah it was i was having a rough time with the kids and my mum was trying to comfort me at the time then she just came out with it.lol too be honest i wasnt best impressed as i have lived 1 mile away from him for the last 26 years. it didnt go down well because she had a son at 16 and left him then another at 18 and left him (the one i didnt know about.) then she had another son when i was 5 and he ended up living with his dad so sounds really bad but shes my mum and has brought me up so what can i say.

    Watching my brother being born! Very gruesome, but I love him so so much! xx

    That must have been such a shock! At least you didin't live next door or anything, that would have been mega creepy!
    Every family has skeletons in the closet - not literally, well i hope not - something good came out of something bad though!
