So I’m back to a normal life again. Did everyone else come out on the other side of the holidays in one piece? Had good food? Nice relatives?

For Christmas we drove north to visit my parents, it was all very calm and quiet as it was just me and Markus and my parents and the pets. It was cold as fuck (-32°C) up there so we couldn’t go out much. Zaphod spent the whole time supervising the kitchen to make sure he wouldn’t miss any food my mother might throw him. I don’t know how many times I’ve told her he’s not supposed to eat half a kilo of meatballs instead of his own food, but she doesn’t care.

Look at him, he looks so sad! And he’s all skin and bones!” 🙄 Oh well…

Even the dog gets a present

Zaphod loves opening packages so we put a bone in a box (gift-wrapped of course) and let him open it. Unfortunately, I ran out of memory on the camera (*grr*) before he got it opened so the clip doesn’t show him actually getting the bone. He seemed to like it though.
Oh, and the voice talking is coming from the TV. It’s not me yammering.

After Christmas, we headed south to see Markus parents. For New Year’s Eve, we just sat in their house watching TV and playing games. We bought a shitload of candy and ordered pizza and at midnight we toasted in Coca-cola. We’re not big party people so it actually felt good to do absolutely nothing fancy or special. :) What did you guys do?

And we went to see The Hobbit!! :D I will post a separate blog post about it in a few days, but long story short I loved it. Loved it I tell you!
