My 2008

It's been a really busy year both in my personal life and in work.

My own personal highlights of 2008 are:

  • Celebrating our engagement and making arrangements for our wedding in April 2009.
  • The birth of our beautiful niece, Emily.
  • The birth of my beautiful goddaughter, Florence.
  • Being asked to be Florence's godfather.
  • Being Best Man for my best friend's wedding in June.
  • Being Groomsman for my brother at his wedding in August.
  • Attending two stag dos, one at Stockholm and one in Prague.
  • Surviving a really busy year in school. The summer and autumn terms were particularly stressful - but I've done it!
  • Arranging the helicopter visit to school.
  • Surviving the credit crunch (so far!) It's not been an easy year financially as Lisa was not working for six months and we have a wedding to save for!
  • Discovering Twitter, Toodledo, Delicious and Zamzar - brilliant tools that I don't know how I survived without!
