chronological life events - how much detail?

As the title says really...we starting stage one of our agreement and have pretty much done our family tree, we just need to actually put the 2 sides together on one sheet. I am starting to think about our life events and am wondering how much info is needed for this? Are we talking bullet points with a sentence or 2, or more like a paragraph on each?
Should we be writing in bullet point at all or more "essay style"?

Many thanks

We did a sentence or two on each, as there's lots of opportunities to relay more info further down the form (if it's anything like ours!). Good luck!

It feels like a life time ago but actually it's just over a 18 months since I did mine...but from memory my LA gave me a template and an example of a completed one to give an idea of level of detail. Things like each time you moved house and why, each school you went to through to all your jobs and reasons for changing plus of course any family based things such as deaths of any significant people, relationships etc.
