    Default 2008/2009 - memories and resolutions.............

    Well boys and girls, as we prepare to bid farewell to 2008 and see 2009 beckoning round the corner, I thought it was time to reflect on the ups and downs of 2008, as well as thinking ahead to hopes for the coming year, and any resolutions we may have.

    Here are mine -

    Memories of 2008 -

    Getting 'almost fit' for the Race for Life, and the excitment of Tashy and I running it, getting all the way round and raising over £300!!
    The stress of James's GCSE results and the amazing unexpectedness of his 9 passes!
    Celebrating my Nanna's 100th birthday in May, but sadly losing her in November, after a full life and a short illness

    What's to come in 2009 -

    Getting through another 2 sets of GCSE's for Phil and Tashy
    Hopefully seeing my Auntie from Canada who I haven't seen since I was 16!
    Hitting (and surviving!!) the big 4-0.

    Resolutions -

    I will start writing again!
    I will get fit again!

    Over to you - I reckon 3 pages by midnight would do nicely!!!

    Oh, and whilst I'm at it - all the very best to you all, and you nearest and derest, for a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!

    xxxx

    Memories of '08?
    The birth of my son!
    But on the flip side, the death of my grandfather (mums dad).

    Whats to come?
    Cant wait for my son to start crawling, saying his first word/words and watching him take his first step's, whenever that should come!

    Resolutions?
    Make more time for my son & family, use the time off from work more effectively.
    Get rid of the spare tyre that is starting to inflate around my waist!
    Find a house!
    Try to step up a gear in my work!! Fulfill my career aspirations!


    For you all?

    A very Happy New Year and my best wishes to you all for 2009.
    I hope all your dreams and wishes come true!!

    All the best to you and Drinky Lou, I've only one resolution this year and that's to quit the weed, but whether it happens or not is another thing.

    08 memories, tbh I'd prefer to forget this decade.

    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    2008

    Seemed to be the quickest year i can remember..!
    They say they get quicker as you get older !
    This year i did permanent nights so probably spent more time at work than at home !

    The 3 main Vectra-C meets (PVS, Billing and Trax) were brilliant. Shame Trax was a little 'damp' !

    Of course i'll mention buying the new car in January .
    Swapped a prefacelift CDTi 150 for the facelift 2.0T.

    Losing my Aunty after a painful 2-1/2 year battle with cancer in April.

    3 brilliant holidays - a week in France fishing, 2 weeks in Mexico - August and 2 weeks in Florida - october.

    2009

    Going to be an expensive year i think !
    Things looking good work wise with order books full with 3+ years work plus whatever jobs come in between now and then.

    Planning a 2 storey extension and hope to be able to fit a holiday in aswell. No fishing trip to France planned, unless one of the guys has a change of mind (if not maybe a trip with Vec C to Spain ?)

    If its half as good as 2008, then i think we'll have a good one.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    2008 good; Hello to Luke and all that has entailed. Started work for a decent company.

    2008 bad; Ususal things, worries about how credit crunch may eventually affect us.

    2009; Looking forward to watching little man grow up, friends finally getting married, another niece or nephew on the way, may decide Luke needs a brother or sister. Might chop the Siggy in for something else.

    Resolutions for 2009 Lose another 2 stone. 1 and a bit down this year without really trying. Want to do this by Easter......
