Time Event
2008: a year in pictures

In January we welcomed in the year with a toast. And in February we went to Bath for the weekend, to celebrate Rae's birthday.

Later February we went to Lisbon to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday, and visited the tower at Belem, the monastery and the castle.

Easter was in March: we made a snowman on Easter day, had an Easter cake, and went for a nice walk to Waterbeach with Duncan, Adam and Bridget.

Cake! Intrepid walkers

The boys were all given a flying lesson for Christmas. The closest they got when we visited in May was to sit in the plane on the ground, but Mike managed to get his flight when we visited again in June for my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary.

At the beginning of July the whole family went off to Bute, where we stayed at Ascog House for a week, and explored the island.

In August Mike and I went on a cycling holiday, visiting Chester, Beeston Castle, and Colemere.


In September we moved house, buying a place in Great Shelford

And at Christmas we visited Mike's parents, taking a walk in the winter sunshine at Symonds Yat, with its wonderful views of the Wye Valley.
