I started my last year in high school, and moved to my mother's place to stay for 6 months because my dad was away studying. I'd been living with him alone since I was 12, but since there were just a few kilometres separating their homes it wasn't that big a change. Except for the curfew rules...

I'd just returned from summer school in Thessaloniki, where I'd gone straight from my ancient Greek studies. Now I returned to do Latin, and was taking notes in Greek. Fat lot of help that does me now if I want to check out some Latin!

We were newly-weds dancing the days away. And working? Yeah, I guess we must have been.. And planning that we'd have somewhere between 4 and 10 kids (seriously).

We did have between 4 and 10 kids... After one year joint maternity & paternity leave, I spent this autumn home alone with the quads (Jakob being in kindergarten). The first day I cleaned the entire house. (Admittedly a smaller one than we have now.) The second day I went for a long walk - with three in the special pram and one on my back. From the third day onward there was always at least one sick(-ish), and I don't think I left the house until my hubby had another 5 months paternity leave from March... Not the 7-8 months I'd rather repeat. (Did you know that with 4 babies, the first one will wake up when the last one is put to bed...)

I was enjoying working life as a legal secretary (here in the lift at my old job) , still contemplating whether I ought to quit, though, so I could spend more time at home when the quads started school. And I was still high from our holidays in Crete in May, so I lived through the winter!

Still holidays :) Just back from Denmark.
Home, working, dinner, blogging, you know how it works...
Update: Yes, Julie, we did talk about 50 kids. At least. At one stage. But only because I wanted to name one son Ossian (admittedly, long before we knew we were having any...), and hubby said - ok, son no. 50 can have that name...
