2005 Review in a Blog

2005 has been full ofchange following a year of energy in 2004… We started the year with Anne-Marie still travelling to Leicester and Glenn still trying to be a HR Manager! In January 2005 Glenn got a year older but other than grey hairs hasn’t gained much more! In February Anne-Marie also gained a year but managed to miss the grey hair increase! (Glenn’s dad retired shortly followed by mum!) In March we had a really good time with friends in Aylesbury at Easter building a Holy Space as part of our Church’s Easter Celebrations. With the exception of a friends wedding, we struggled through April knowing that we had a holiday planned and that many parts of our Camp planning had gone relatively smoothly. In May we joined our friends the Edwards in the Lakes for a week at Centre Parcs on Holiday! It was a great week filled with fresh air and fun in the middle of a forest. Glenn also resigned from Costain as he had accepted a new job with Rok. We went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in London in June whilst July saw us complete final preparations for Porthpean and go to another Wedding whilst Glenn worked out his notice with a little garden leave! Anne-Marie was still working hard on her studies. The camp in August went amazingly smoothly with next to no hiccups. We had fun and shared amazing fellowship with new and old friends and 84 young people. Glenn started his new job on our return from Cornwall. In September Martha (our cat) was diagnosed with diabetes and we attended another wedding. We went to see Mary Poppins in London and decided to take up golf. Since then time has flown -not through playing golf! We have committed to running Porthpean again next year and made a concerted effort to start planning for this in October. Anne-Marie made significant headway with the last parts of her Master’s degree in November whilst Glenn has taken up reading Leadership Development books! As December makes the days shorter, we are looking forward to an end to Anne-Marie’s studies (hopefully gaining her LLM) and decorating the house in the new year! We will have attended our 4th wedding before the year ends! And to sun it all up in a picture or two:
