The other day my brother brought home a beamer with which we turned the living room into a perfect home cinema/giant playstation screen/wonderful way of spending time with the family while everyone was feeling pretty poorly...


This is one of the movies we watched. We all loved it and giggled all the way through! And forgot about our nausea and temperature for a bit.

Still here!

Hi everyone!

No, I haven't disappeared... I have suffered a pretty bad stomach flu over the past few days though, and just when I thought I felt better I got hit by one of those silly ophthalmic migraines I get a few times a year... I guess I hadn't reached my quota for 2010 and needed to squeeze in that last one before December 31st!

So, not a fun few days all in all, but it means I had a zero calorie Christmas meal (hehe), and plenty of TLC from all family members around, which is always so helpful...

Anyway, here is a little message for you guys.

Picture from here (Turkljaca, Croatia).

In the alps...

Went skiing and snowboarding in the sun today. It was fantastic!

P.S. Doesn't my brother's iPhone 4 take excellent photos?

Season's greetings

This Christmas the family greeting cards at my parents' place were slightly different from other years: Mum made a little online magazine on the colours red and green.
She asked for some input from my side, and I sent in some of my numbers - a selection of red and green ones, to go with the general theme.

Here is the whole magazine.

Enjoy! And... Merry Christmas!

Xmas tree

I fell in love with this tree, and just had to have one at our place too.

The way you see it on this photo is when it had only two garlands, which was a bit too short, but I've added an extra one today - much better!

Little presents for Sinterklaas

I've made little packages for my colleagues, for Sinterklaas.
They are filled with red and white candy. Yum!


Happy Sinterklaas everyone!
