There is no way that I can bail out on the Slush Cup race on Sunday like I did on the last one. None of the family is in hospital and I therefore have no excuses other than the fact that I have pciked up a cold and have some niagra style snot issues to contend with this morning.
I assume that there will be plenty of snow to contend with, I am just hoping that the temperature can remain below 0 for another few days so that we don't have a total mud bath on our hands (and all over the rest of us).
Our vacation or holiday plans for the rest of the year are starting to crystalise. We are going to England by ferry in April for a week. The flights were >4000DKK and we'd have to rent a car for some days apparently whilst there, an alternative was to fly somewhere cheaper which would mean renting a car for the full week (>6000DKK) of we could take our own car on the boat for 5700DKK. The only real problem is that we also have to pay for petrol and bridge tolls, but on the plus side there are no planes, airports, security checks and I can take my bike.
