I’m dreaming of a hot Christmas with a BBQ and a game of Cricket…

Christmas. A white Christmas. In America. It’s one of those things every dreams off. Unfortunately our Christmas was marred by illness, and was a disaster in the making. 2 days before Christmas one of Jen’s family members got some bad … Continue reading

Snow’s falling down, as you step out of your car… [At Christmas]…

Every year I write a Christmas letter to send out to all my friends and family about what I’ve done that year. This year I was cheap and only sent out about 30 letters/cards – so for the rest of … Continue reading

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I have officially been stripped of my snow virginity. I’ve been to the snow before. One Father’s Day when I lived in New Zealand I remember going to one of the skifields at Mt Ruapehu and making snowballs with the … Continue reading

I took the walk (in the freezing cold with NO SHOES!)…

Every single time I see you, I start to feel this way [HOLY COW, IT’S HANSON]

I am in temporary shock. It’s 3:30am and I’m lying in bed in a motel that reminds me of the one my grandparents owned for 20 years, still caught up in amazement at the show I saw tonight in Stroudsburg, … Continue reading

Last minute Hanson roadtrip… yes, I said HANSON!
