This book details my life and in summary, I look at my life in decades, the first decade was being born then filled with travel from a very early stage as well as learning and living in war torn Rhodesia. However with my naivety at that time – the war was almost like an adventure apart from the struggle for food and living in mud huts and sleeping on cow dung decorated floors.
The second decade was all about higher education, experiencing teenage years, travelling to Europe albeit briefly and meeting the father of my children.
The third decade was the period I had my two children and made the heart breaking decision of leaving my children with my parents while I started a new beginning overseas. However once they joined me, I played my part bringing up my children and step children and juggling motherhood as well as finding and building a career in the banking industry.
The fourth decade was spent running and managing a home of seven, travelling on business as well as travelling on family vacations and excelling in my career.
The fifth decade is all about enjoying life in retirement and spending time with my grandchildren. Presently, my life is all about living well and spending time in different countries in mainland Europe.
Having accomplished more than I ever dreamed of, I feel that I have lived a very blessed/ fortunate life and achieved more than I ever imagined in my life. My only wish is that my parents were here to see how life turned out for me.
