First snow of 2007

Ah the first snow of the year. Everything looks so pretty when you take that first look out of the window. Bit of a pain in the backside to drive to work in though!

It didn't last long though; I think the majority of it was gone by lunch time. The question is ... will we see any more before Spring springs?

Pineapple a go-go

For Christmas my sister bought me the present I have been waiting for, for ages. It has been on my "Birthday and Christmas List" for some time now and finally I have one.

Pineapple has to be one of, if not the most favourite fruit of mine. However the darn things take forever and a day to chop up. That is why I wanted one of these little gadgets to save me time and effort!

Basically you cut the top off of the pineapple, twist it all down all the way to the bottom, and then pull the pineapple out.

But the most ingenious thing is that you are left with the pineapple shell which you can then fill with cocktails! Ok so I haven't tried putting a cocktail in it yet, but give me time!

On the wagon

At the beginning of the month I made a decision that I would stay off the booze for the whole of January. I suppose you could say it was a kind of New Years Resolution, however I'm not sure if it really counts because there was no intent that it would last for the year or would be a decision to radically change my life for good (can't do without a good old gin now and then!). Then again, most peoples NY Resolutions don't survive past the 1st of January anyway!

I have not been doing this because I am in fear that I am an alcoholic and this is the only way to test my dependency, I just figured that after the excesses of the festive season where drink was flowing a-plenty for most of December, my liver could do with a break.

So here I am at day 19 and not a drop of alcohol has passed my lips for 18 whole days. Not bad - I'm surviving. Just 13 more days to go!
