Oh blimey! There are only a few hours to go, most of which will be spent in the pub next door, and I haven’t written my end of year review yet! OK, time pressures mean it’ll be bullet points:
- Highlights, in roughly chronological order:
- my trip to Saumur
- birthday trip to Lisboa
- the grand tour of the low countries
- selling my flat
- finally getting to live full-time with Hels
- the grand tour of Germany
- getting married! (obviously!)
- the honeymoon in Sicily
- getting our own home in Ruralville
- not selling Hels’s flat
- generally not having enough money or time for all the things we want to do
- ummm… that’s about it really
All in all, 2004 has been excellent. PFE continues to plod along, family are healthy and happy (mostly!) and I married the perfect girl for me. You can’t ask for much more than that really.
Happy New Year to you. Come back to the same place this time next year for another exciting annual review!
I’m sure that this story was first reported about a week ago on local television. Either way, you have to admire the determination of someone to hide from the law inside a sofa. (Eastbourne Today posted the story on December 23rd – come on BBC, that’s rubbish!).

Why has our PM continued his holiday in light of the events in the Indian Ocean?
Disasters Emergency Committee. Apparently, their website has been struggling with traffic, so you may find it easier to donate by telephone on 0870 60 60 900. Alternatively, all the high street banks are accepting donations.
Thought: will the people in Darfur and elsewhere be forgotten in all this?
