It was cold for our first sledging trip yesterday, but today has been a bit warmer and we are planning skiing tomorrow after J has his first proper haircut (meaning not done by me!) I'll post some pictures after all of that excitement, but in the meantime we are about to pig out again on pasta with meatballs after my home made bagels this morning which were a big hit.

I think we are more or less decided on the baby jogger (for now).
For those of you who read blog written by non-family members (ajen?) I am pretty chuffed that it seems the author of this well known blog turned book has commented here... twice!
Wow, I suddenly feel like giving up work to become a writer...

- Early start
- Plenty to drink
- Plenty to eat
- Loss of coherence before it is dark (approx 3:45pm)
We are beginning with a beer tasting session before we eat and then I guess moving on to a beer and schnapps consuming session with less emphasis on the tasting.
My worry is that I have to take a train home at 9:30 that arrives in Ringsted at about 2am, I hope I don't sleep until Copenhagen...
Here is J at the zoo in September just because I haven't seen him much recently.

The weather in Aalborg is awful today so we have eaten at the hotel buffet; frankly the canteen at work was better!
More of the same tomorrow although we have the Christmas party on Friday to look forward to...

I am in Aalborg at the moment working in this rather nice building overlooking the harbor. I am staying in the quality hotel with a South African guy from London and a Swede from Gothenburg which is actually OK.
Aalborg seems like an OK place and we were amazed that the first restaurant we went to was full which is pretty amazing for a Tuesday night.
It is really hard being away from home at the moment and I feel really bad that MK is stuck with J during month end whilst I am away for the whole week. At least we are going to have a couple of weeks together over Christmas...

J has a really bad cough which kept us all up quite a lot last night and then I had to get up at 4:40 to get the train accross Denmark to Viborg to start my new job. I got here at about 10:00 swearing that I will fly next time.

The week in Boulder was really nice and relaxing although my legs are still aching from thetelemarking. Thanks a lot to Dad and M for putting me up and lending me the cars.
I have 9 days of work to do before we head back there which will be fun with MK and J in tow. Unfortunatley my first week in my new job will involve 4 nights away from home and the second will have 2 so I will not have spent much time with the family before we head back across the Atlantic.
