What a busy couple of months it's been. Most of my time, money, effort and energy had been taken up by the kitchen remodel, skiing, rugby and Christmas.

I've completely removed everything from the kitchen and dining room. The sheetrock, vinyl flooring (3 layers of the shit) and sub-floor have all met their maker at the local dump. I've removed the dining room window and installed a new sliding glass door. This not only lets in a lot of natural light, but it will allow great access the back yard.

I've got to replace the wiring and plumbing before I can set the cabinets and then tile the floor. A lot has happened so be sure to check out the photos. I'm aiming to have it all done before heading off to Australia in April for another visit. My great mate Fluxy is tying the not with Sonia and has honored me by invited me to be his best man.

Skiing has also taken up what spare time I had, and I'm really loving it. I don't know why I didn't get into it before. This snow season has been a real let down in Boise, but I'm managing to get out of town to check other ski spots out. Luckily it's come at the end of the ski season, but rugby training has started again and I'm looking forward to improving our record from last season. Even though I feel a lot older than 36 at times, I'll still be running around for a couple of years yet.

Anyway's, I've got a million things to do, so I'd better get off my arse and get some of it done. Hope to hear from you soon.

Stay Happy ;-)
