New Year's Eve 2008.......
Well here we are on the Eve of a brand new year again.
Looking back, 2008 hasn’t been a disastrous year for us so I thought I do a recap.
February found me celebrating the first anniversary of my successful knee replacement operation see here or if you want to read all the gory details see here.
July MWM and I had a memorable fortnight on the Greek Island of Kefalonia. If you missed the photos you can see them here, here, here and here.
We returned from holiday to the news that our eldest son had been a victim of a knife attack. Thankfully he escaped with a broken foot and an injured knee. The rest of the year has been spent fighting the Justice system trying to get the people responsible punished for their crime. You can read about it here, here and here and it's ongoing!
In September we got three (yes 3) new additions to the family when my eldest son bought three hens!
October found us celebrating MWM’s 60th birthday.
November was the month I was warned to keep my nose out of a neighbour’s argument. . We also had a memorable trip to Krakow, Poland – you can read about it here, here, here and here if you missed it.
We had three inches of snow in December which caused absolute chaos here and meant I was stranded for two hours until my son came to rescue me and others. Also this month a colleague and I raised some money for Children In Need by organising a Teddy Crèche at the school where I work.
Tonight MWM and I are going to a party at our local civic hall with our friends. There will be lots of music, dancing and drinking (probably) and we’re going to have a ball! There a group playing called the Dakotas they used to back a singer called Billy J. Kramer. The Dakotas are not the original group but no doubt they will be singing hits from the 60’s. It will be a late night so we will have a long lie in bed in the morning then MWM and I are going to our favourite Chinese Restaurant in the evening.
What are you doing tonight?
However you are ringing in the New Year, I hope you have a great time and I truly hope the New Year brings you Good Health and Happiness.
