High and Low Lights of 2008

Being stranded in Singapore for 24 hours over New Year last year. Still, a five star hotel is a great place to do this in.

Being in Jerusalem at the same time as George W Bush. It was a nightmare, the city was gridlocked for two solid days. Being stuck in a blizzard on the way to Tel Aviv airport. SCARY.

Meeting some amazing, brave Iraqi families with sick children in Israel. They were being treated for free by a charity called Shevet Achim.

Having a crazy, wonderful Brazilian lodger for 4 months, and two “daughters” from S. Africa and the US at the same time. Great fun.

The Great Wall and Mammoth Drain project on our property. We lived with mud and chaos for four months.

Having concussion and a recovery period for 6 weeks.

Getting a new job, which nearly fried me after two months. It got better.

Having friends stay with us from all over the world.

Fundraising for Shevet Achim.

Having acute tonsillitis over the Christmas Holidays.

Looking forward to what 2009 will bring.
