2008: The year in review

What a fantastic year 2008 was! Keeping up with the tradition started by Bender, here’s a look back on the year that was.

Life

Life seems to get busier by the day. Here’s the big ticket items from 2008:

  • We farewelled our good friends Ben and Michelle as they travelled their way back home to Australia in February.
  • Stacey and Wes got engaged! And then moved to Aberdeen, harsh!
  • Lisa popped over from New York for a few days in April, and kept us laughing the whole time she was here.
  • In August, we moved out of our Chiswick flat, and joined up with Julian and Shelley to become Team Barbeque Chicken of Putney.
  • My brother popped the question to his beautiful girlfriend Susan, and now they too are engaged!
  • Jason and Louise visited again! Their friend Craig came along as well, and we took a day trip out to Windsor Castle.
  • I joined the 30 club, and we celebrated with a day at the pub.

Travel

We can never get enough travel! Looks like we did a pretty good job of spreading things out over the year though, with a few local trips and lots of international ones too:

Music

Lots of concerts in 2008!

Miscellaneous

Yep, it really was a fantastic year. Here’s to an even better 2009!
