It has also become the scapegoat for my total lack of exercise in December. I am seriously above fighting weight. But I have a plan - as soon as the wrist can take weight I begin the Insanity workout (more on that another day). If I can't start that on 1 Jan, I will run until I can. I will make Easter my target to get to fighting weight and strength.
So here is a bit of a photo dump of recent weeks:
I don't like concerts
We went to see The Killers and The Black Keys, both at the O2. They were great and 'smashed it'. Except, I can't say I enjoyed them all that much. Maybe something to do with not liking people much. I just can't seem to get into it.
We had a long weekend away in Berlin. Boy, city breaks are expensive, but it was a nice break. Its a bleak city, but interesting, and has much Gluwein (mulled wine).
The Berlin Wall. And Holly
The Michel Burger Hotel bar - good place to stay
Outside the Reichstag
Currywurst and chips - an odd and quite crap German fast food dish
I like whisky!
After much perseverance, I can officially announce I like whisky. I currently have four on the go and they are all mighty fine. Thanks goes out to Mike C for buying me an Old Pulteney and my Gran for picking up a rather fine 18 year old Glenfiddich when she meant to get the younger and much cheaper version. I also have a 10-year-old Talisker and a Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Should do me for a while!
Contentment in a glass
Look at the bottles, not the eyes
The First Xmas
...in the new house. Holly aced the xmas dinner on her first attempt and still had time to bake a cake and make truffles. Mad skillz.
Holly's lunch (I carved)
Holly's cake (I gorged)
Its now nearly 7pm, which means beer o'clock - gotta get it all in before 1 Jan!
Hope you all had a great Christmas.
