Baby Ben

Look at me I am holding a baby! :P

Ok so I am still not a baby person, but I know that I definately want kids and I am pretty excited to have some some day actually.

Strove Tuesday

Well Happy Strove Tuesday... the day you apparently eat pancakes!

The British pancakes are quite flat, similar to crepes really. (not as good I thought; mind you I don't really like pancakes any way you flip it!)

I brought this syrup with me over to England in 2008 and it is still edible!  That can't be good can it?!

The Biebs!

Sunday morning I watched Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.  I cried like 4 times!  Bloody smultzy music and baby picture montages!

You can't help but root for the little fella!

It is like Hanson but 10+ years later.  Lord am I getting old or what!! :)

A special moment in time

I may not have had exactly these night bus experiences, but I know the feeling, and I am glad it's not just me that thinks this way.

The Ghetto house on the block

This house has a leakage problem.  And it has been going for hmmm 2 years!

4 years

Four years ago today I started working at CT.  It was a Thursday.  I can't believe it has been 4 years.  I am really going to miss the guys when I am gone.

The Giants won the Superbowl that year too. 

Bought my flights to Germany for August.  WOOT looking forward to this year! :)

The Gym

Well I can't speak for all gyms in London / England, but the cross section I have been to have lead me to believe the level of hygine is not up to par with their Canadian, well at least Saskatchewanian, counterparts.  You walk to the change rooms through the excerise area with your outdoor shoes on.  You don't need to clean the equipment before or after you use it.  In fact there is nothing provided to clean it with at all.  (correction!! Mark just mentioned he saw some cleaning wipes today, so ok maybe)  Today some guy ran on a treadmile with his outdoor runners on and sprayed dirt all over that place.  I guess that is just some inconsiderate stupid-head though!  Could happen anywhere.  Anyhoo, this is clearly not that interesting of a blog so I may stop now!

p.s. I did a pretty nice staight legged bridge today and didn't hurt myself - I was pretty pumped!

2012 New Years Resolutions


- brush my teeth before leaving the house in the morning (I have a toothbrush at work too, but lots of time I forget to do it when I get there; thats not good is it!)

- excerise at least twice a week (I know this is the same as last year, but I think I might struggle to do 3 time a week consistantly, so I am keeping it simple for now)

- be confident when meeting new people, and don't shy away from meeting new people

- get a new job in Regina that I am interested in and don't just settle (and if I do settle at first, make sure it is only a short term thing1)

- continue working on my ballet moves even when I am not able to take classes anymore (also to look into adult Tap and Ballet classes in Regina; should they exist)

- learn how to use my SLR camera on the manual settings

- bike ride more in the summer and maybe buy a new bike

That's it I think, nothing to taxing I suppose

Walking home today I feel the wind cutting across my face and thighs, just like Saskatchewan; oh wait its only minus -5!  Funny how minus five can feel so cold.  I need to get back to real winters!

Currently planning a trip to Rome and one to Croatia - I better start saving my money!!

Below is a random picture that has nothing to do with this post.  I just like the picture. :)  I went to the Death Cab show in November, it was very good.
