We are now into Day 8 of Blogtober 2020, and today the theme is Millennium. I do love the song. I am loving the song themed title prompts as I have the songs going around in my head while I am writing the post.
When I was younger the year 2000 seemed like a long way off. We also watched films and TV programs where the year 2000 would be all science fiction like. How wrong was I.
The Year 2000
The end of 1999 was totally different I had come out of an 11 year relationship and going through a divorce. I had also met my husband and enjoying a new relationship with a man who loved and cherished me. As opposed to my ex who I now realise had me in an abusive relationship.
I was working in banking, and there was all the scare stories that the internet could go down, security systems could go mad. I was chief cashier and the Bank of England were on top of this and I ended up being in control of £1 million. Honestly it is not as impressive as you think it is. But it was a very scary responsibility.
New Years Eve 1999
I wanted to celebrate the end of the 90’s with a bang. We had decided to meet up with friends in London and watch the fireworks welcome in a new era. It would also be the time where we could say goodbye to the past and look forward to our future.
Unfortunately, my husband was ill, 21 years later I have not seen him so ill. At one point I though he was going to die on me. So with me nursing him we stayed home and watched the fireworks on the TV sipping a coffee. But we were together.
Luckily he started to recover, but it was scary.
How did you see in the millennium?
