I'm dreaming of a White Christmas

We had our first snow of the winter last weekend. Though unfortunately because we live on the south west coast we didn't get as much as other parts of Denmark. But temperatures were still max. 1 min -6. They say it is going to be a proper cold winter this year...well I just hope that we get lots of snow with it to make it worth while!!

Gym take two

Tom & I joined a gym 1 1/2 years ago & have been going regularly (apart from a few periods of lapses in attendance) ever since. But since starting work I have found it hard to find a suitable time to go. This mainly because my gym membership only allowed me to go in the mornings. Well last month Tom decide we were just wasting our money & that we should quit & find something else to do. Problem is we couldn't find anything else to do & with winter coming on the option of going for a walk/run outside everyday just isn't appealing. So it's back to the gym. We have found one that is cheaper & allows us to go at anytime of the day. You can definatley tell that it's cheaper individual TV on the treadmills, no free coffee & breadrolls, no heat adjustable showers. But I guess those are all just frills & the main purpose of the gym is still attainable.
