Notice a difference. Yes it's true, those are eyes and eyebrows. Heidi had here first hair cut today, a fringe cut in. She is so pleased with it. Big smiles all round, and a slight tear from her Mum!

Just a typical Tuesday?

Today was the day that the Olympic torch made its way through Calgary on route to Vancouver for the 2010 winter Olympics. The winter Olympics are huge here, although for the most part the sports seem dull to watch they were fun to play on the Wii!! We have friends who live on the parade ground so we joined in the celebrations.

Getting ready to watch the flame being run down the street
Here it comes!
Worth all the wait? Well I wouldn't have stood out for hours like some had, but popping out the house a few mins before and running in afterwards for lunch was fun. There were lots of people lining the route and so there was lots of noise and excitement.
Although our tiny Canadian was thoroughly unimpressed!

January 12th 2010

As the UK enjoys (!) the big freeze, we are enjoying a Chinook (warm wind) bringing with it a big thaw! So we celebrated with an impromptu picnic on the front porch.
It was so warm that Heidi asked if we could take the clothes off our could I refuse.
Happy days :)
