    Wedding day.

    Laying eyes on the Eiffel Tower for the first time. Was night and DH's cousin was driving us through the city to his apartment. I was plastered to the window waiting to see it and suddenly it was there, all lit up for Christmas. Gives me goosebumps thinking about it.

    Many dance performances I've been in.

    Some concerts I've been to - Sting and the Sydney philharmonic orchestra, the recent Something For Kate 20th anniversary concert and my all time favourite music experience...Midnight Oil supported by Skunkhour at the Brisbane Riverstage in 1997/1998. One of the most amazing nights of my life. The energy was unbelievable.

    Many travelling and camping experiences come to mind. One particular was when DH and I were in Spain. It was raining (in winter) and we were hiking up to a lookout. It was a bit miserable. All of a sudden we saw this dishevelled looking lady in the distance unwrapping what looked like fish and chips. She started dancing around and singing a strange song. Out of nowhere came literally 30 feral cats! They all started feasting on whatever the food was. It was like a movie. The lady kept dancing and singing. I wish my description could do the incident justice. Anyway, DH and I share a very similar (quite wicked) sense of humour and safe to say we have dined out many times on what we witnessed in the 11 years since.

    That lady was awesome. 🐱🐱🐱

    My wedding day, the day I found out my PhD had been awarded, running through the streets of Paris with dh to get to the Eiffel Tower before it closed our last night overseas. Some really wonderful memories. 😀

    Probably in Turkey on a boat and a female chimpanzee came and sat next to me and started grooming me. She was very strong but gentle. She then sat next to me with her arm around my shoulder whilst I drank some tea. She was sad when I left and got angry that my bf at the time was walking away with me. A surreal day.

    Of course the birth of my both my babies would be the top 2 moments, so asides from that...


    I know it's kid related but finding out I was pregnant with DS1. An amazing moment after a long time TTC, undergoing IVF and a miscarriage. Was truly the beginning of the next chapter of mine and hubby's life.

    Graduating from uni. Felt so wonderful being on stage dressed in my cap and gown and accepting my degree. All my hard work paid off, and being the first person in my family to do this made me very proud too.

    My top moments (aside from having kids) would firstly be moving to Australia. Had I not have come here I would not have all that I have now- dh, kids, uni degree with honours, permanent job that I absolutely love and all new family and friends.. then my wedding day and moving away from my parents. Also the day we found out we were pregnant with ds. I will never forget how young, excited and scared we were... oh and getting my drivers licence

    I honestly can't think of anything. That makes me really depressed, I am very plain and average, nothing overly exciting has ever happened to me

    Graduating uni
    Travelling the UK
    Those early uni days when I was finding my own feet, living on next to nothing, studying and socialising - I know it's not a moment but it was such a hard but great time and at that stage of my life the possibilities were endless.

    Maybe that just means your best moments are still to come?
