Just like everybody else does...
Well, for some reason, I cannot read my blogs from my computer, but I have seen that they possibly work on others, so I will keep typing anyway!
It was probably a better idea to create this 18 months ago, but now we intend on filling in the gaps when there is a quiet week (which happens a lot now that winter has hit here!). Will start with most recent vacation to Liverpool. Probably not the most flattering shot I have ever seen of us - but it is probably the most honest! We went out for birthday drinks with our beautiful hosts - Tim and Tash (who we see more over here than we ever did in Australia - ironic!), and by the time the birthday dinner came around, we had already had 3 nights of drinking/going out! It quite clearly shows around the eyes once you hit 25!! But, it was nice all the same, and the chocolate fondue we had at the end of the meal was nice too!
This was our 2nd trip to the land of the Beatles - we went in January as well, and did all of the touristy business, but of course, as you can tell by this photo of Penny Lane - the weather could have been a little nicer! But, that's England (and Belgium and half of Europe I guess!!). The Beatles magical mystery tour was a lot of fun, and we saw the houses where they all grew up, Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, and the club they started off at.
As for this week - between christmas and new year 2005 - I am working - but preparing for our ski holiday on the 8th of January to Morzine in the French Alps. Christmas here was nice, but not home. No beach volleyball, no fight to get to the cold seafood pile on the middle of the table. No sweating, sitting around drinking beers. The traditional dish here is stew. I guess it keeps you warm when it is sub zero, but hmmm...! Dunno what we are doing for New Years yet!
