Welcome to my series where I share our adventures on a year by year basis and the music in the charts that are still on my playlist today.
I am also taking requests and all you have to do is either put the artist and track in the comments or the link to the music on Youtube..
1988 – Plane Drama, New Zealand and I Should Be So Lucky!
For the first few months of 1988 both of us were working hard at our individual jobs and getting know the people we worked with as well as our neighbours. I was promoted to Advertising Sales Manager at the paper where I worked which was gratifying, but added an element of pressure to the job. I enjoyed that and set about building the classified sales team for the weekdays and introducing a telephone sales team in the evenings and weekends for cars and property.
It was the end of the summer before we knew it and we both felt we needed to go for a really good holiday. We had spent time in the Alps both in summer and winter and loved it, but we suddenly realised that we had a huge amount of air miles accumulated with Continental Airlines. It was coming up to our anniversary so we decided to go as far as our air miles could take us first class.
Believe it or not we could go to New Zealand and back first class for free! We decided that it was too good an opportunity to miss and duly booked our flights to coincide with our Wedding Anniversary in November.
