JYC December 30th

Today's prompt was to look back over 2008 and remember the important events.

Don't you just love those cute little eyes instead O's?? LOL
Added photos to the tags of the main events of the year.

Looking back on 2008 I think we had a pretty eventful year with lots more ups than downs.
January and February Mum was staying with me, while Chris went off to Saudi Arabia for a business trip of 3 months.
March 4th was Christopher’s 21st birthday.
April – we had the front garden landscaped and a wall built, making the gardens front and back as maintenance free as possible so that when we are away for long periods it doesn’t get out of hand.
July – Christopher passed his final exams for his BSc in Policing gaining a 2.1 honours degree and making me very proud of his hard work.
Chris and I celebrated 9 years of marriage.
August – I had Chris’ study re-done by removing the wardrobes and having book shelves built in and lighting as an anniversary present.
September 1stWe paid off our mortgage!! What a nice feeling that is, debt free at last...
September 11th – Christopher Graduated from University and Mum flew from France, Chris flew in from Saudi and we all went down South to watch the ceremony.
September 21st – Chris and I flew out to Jubail in Saudi Arabia for a 1 year assignment.
November – Christopher passed his driving test and bought his first car.
December – Chris and I took a trip to Bahrain and celebrated Christmas in Jubail.
