2008 – A year in Blog Posts Part 2 (Apr – Jun)

Part two of my review of year. This time covering from April to June. Part one is here if you missed it.

April saw my sister visiting in me Germany and me facing a domestic God test. On this blog Lisbon, Eurovision and the UK Locals dominated as well as a few recurring themes.
