Yule away!

We’re off to spend Yule with W’s mother, sister and family.
M&M are staying home to rest up after all the pre-yule excitement.

We’ve taken obligatory pictures w/santa-cats and posted on Facebook.
M&M were cute as anything, but not impressed with the shenanigans.

There’s lots of good food in our future.
W has the worst cold in the world and have just volunteered as designated driver.
So there’ll be wine for me.

Merry Yule to you all!

White wine in the sun

I’m not from Australia, and white wine in the sun is not a christmas thing around here. Still, I totally agree with Tim!

Cookie Monsters

We had guests yesterday.
Young guests.

They helped us make cookies.
And decorated them.

We had tiny live cookie monsters and food coloring all over the place.

Instead of panicking W and I resorted to this.

Miss sensibly panicked and hid while Mister loved the noisy company.
If it had been up to him he’d have been covered in cookie dough and food coloring too.

When we went to bed W’s hair smelled of cookies.

Yesterday I jogged.
This practically never happens.
Wife, family and friends are still reeling from the shock.

It was only downhill.
But a fairly longish downhill.
I only wanted to keep my pulse up before the flat part and the uphill walk back home.

Today my tighs are screaming at me every time I walk down stairs.

Maybe I should do this jogging thing more often?
