It's 2008...way hay, nine months to go !

So it's now officially 2008 !.It still seems like 2007 really except that we have a lot less cash in the bank and a lot more bills to pay 8-).Anyway, i suppose that this situation is par for course in most households at this time of the year...or is it just me ?.

On a more sober note, it was just before Christmas that i had one of those "this is what it's all about" moments.My wife told me that a close friend of hers had just found out that her niece in Australia had been diagnosed with Lymphoma...and at only 11 years of age she was now preparing to begin chemo whilst the rest of us looked forward to a month of festive fun.
This sort of reality check helps to remind me of why the hell i am arranging (along with Glen and Gary) to undertake this trip to Africa in September, because sometimes the attitude"it only happens to other people" is an assumption that can prove to be a wake up call to us all when that isn't the case.
