an award and update

So much to update on, so little time....

I am back at work after a short holiday. The holiday, albeit short, was much needed and thoroughly enjoyed. We visited a small town outside the city for a few days, just chilling (and trying to keep warm, as it turned out to be freezing there due to the early snow....). I even fitted in a little Spa treatment!

It was so much fun being able to spend such a lot of time with my boy. He really is growing up fast now. 18 months... where did the time go?! He is an active little boy, running and hardly ever walking, climbing and jumping on anything, and talking all the time - even though he does not have too many words yet. He has become quite a lovable little guy, dishing out hugs and kisses to mom on demand most of the time. Cars are still his favourite toys, but he has starting enjoying paging through his books a lot more recently. And of course his favourite book is one with pictures of cars and truck in it! Feeding is still mostly an easy task, as he will practically eat anything. But of course anything that mom is eating is a hit right now.

I visited a preschool a couple of weeks ago. The visit went well, but unfortunately they have a waiting list for next year already. We will likely put his name on the list and see what happens toward the end of the year. I will also be contacting another preschool in the next week or so. He is still able to stay where he is now next year, but I am still of the opinion that we should move him.

Thank you Blackhuff for the Versatile Blogger award (it took me long enough!) So 7 things about me....
  • I am an online gamer... Few people know or would probably expect this. I do not play nearly as often as I did before having my son, but I still enjoy playing a lot.
  • I HATE shopping – absolutely detest it.
  • I grew up in a small town, but I always knew I would never be able to live there. I could not wait to finish school and get out of there.
  • I would not say I am addicted, but I do spend a large part of my day online.
  • I love reading. Finding time to read has been hard, but since getting my Kindle (Best Gift Ever!) I have started up again. Just really need to control myself – buying books is way too easy now!
  • I get along really well with my in laws ... yes, even my mother in law.
  • I do not like having my picture taken. I also do not generally take a lot of pictures. This does not include pictures of my son though – but lately he will not stay still enough to have decent ones taken!

You're a gamer? How awesome. Me too :) More of a PC gamer but alas, gaming is gaming whichever form it might be.
I also spend a large portion of my day online - not addicted as well - just my job allows me to be online frequently :)
Thanks for accepting the award

Sadly, I don't even know what a "gamer" is.

I have never seen or played with a playstation... nothing like that.

Educate me! LOL
