Long time no see... again!

No -we haven't had a long holiday overseas where there was no Internet connection. No - we haven't been so busy I haven't had a chance to sit in front of the computer. No - life hasn't been so boring there has been nothing at all to blog about. Yes - the main computer is in the unheated bedroom. Yes - the weather has been quite cold lately. Yes - I have just been too lazy to write any updates!
I think I am now officially so far behind that I am not going to attempt to update everything at once. We had a really nice Christmas, a very quiet New Year and a wonderful day today! Despite me eating too much chocolate and not doing enough cleaning in 2009, Santa still felt I was in need of a bike and brought it along with a wonderful telescope (through which we have literally seen the craters on the moon) and gumboots for the kids. I took the kids on a really nice cycling road in Usa today for our first big adventure. It is a great cycling path that apparently goes all the way to goes all the way to the sea. We didn't quite go all the way as lunch was waiting at the dog cafe, but we will definitely attempt the remainder in the near future. It was great to be able to bike all together and not have to worry about any cars etc. I am really keen to try the cycling track through an old train route with the kids in spring - hopefully by then my out of shape bum will have recovered from today's adventure!


  1. Happy New Year!

    What a brilliant bike road! I wish we had more months in which to cycle, but maybe it all evens out because I'd be dead and unable to go out during your summer!

  2. Happy New Year! Wow what a cool bike path!Have fun exploring it!

  3. That's a great bike. Good one Santa. Well picked!

    Might have to venture over for a night in the cabin with a baby, a bottle of wine or two and a telescope - in a few months after the novelty has worn off and we can sneak it next door for the night.

    See you tomorrow - fingers crossed.
