Another update from the Bambers, something must be wrong surely…………
We ended 2008 with a trip to Center Parcs with Nana & Grandad (becoming a family tradition now) to see Santa. We also had a trip to Aviemore for their Santa weekend with the Scott family (another tradition).
2008 also brought lots of the McTaggart family together for Darren & Elaine’s wedding, Craig & Ashley, Dennis, Helen & Ryan came over from Canada and spent a few weeks with us, which was brilliant. My mum also turned 60!! we threw her a party, and everyone esp Megan had a ball.
Sadly my Uncle Dennis took unwell the week after my Mum’s birthday and after a brief battle with cancer he passed away on the 14th December.
We took Megan to see Joseph and his amazing technicolour dreamcoat and she absolutely loved it. Its the 1st time we have taken her to anything like that before.
New Year was quiet for us, Steve and I stayed up for the bells, spoke to a few people and then went to bed as we had 10 coming for dinner. Everyone arrived about 1.30pm and wee Laura brought down a new game for the nintendo wii, we all had a shot and it was hysterical!
We also saw Laura Clarke get married a the very end of 2008, so we wish her well in her new life with Andy. They have moved (again) to Middlesborough and have put an offer in on a house so we hope they are putting roots down and staying put for a while at least.
House wise – we have had a new front door and side door fitted and a new window in the downstairs loo. We have water coming the toy room, which used to be the garage and the plaster on the ceiling is about to fall down. Steve has been out on the roof sealing it, but we may have to employ a roofer to sort it out.
I am now busy organising Megan’s 7th, yes 7th, birthday party. We are having a joint party with Heather Scott as their birthdays are 2 days appart. We have a magician to entertain the 60 kids who are being invited. Phew!
We have no other plans as yet, we were hoping to get to Canada this year, but with prices so high we might wait until next year…. hopefully we will be better this year at updating this site………
