Eagles win the Superbowl!

About 15 years after foolishly buying an Eagles wristband and saying I'd wear it until they won the Superbowl, I can finally retire it, after their 41-33 win over The New England Patriots.

Walk over Fairlop Waters

Xmas in Elnesvågen

We're just back from spending a week in Elnesvågen for Christmas. We had some very seasonal snow on Christmas day which was nice (though took time to clear!), as well as a trip to see Marie and family. A few photos are below, while a few more are here:

Sunday trip up to Ely

On a snowy Sunday, we took a trip up to Ely to see Caroline, Frankie and Scarley....not forgetting Justin and Daisy! The drive up was quite slow due to the conditions, but coming home was a lot quicker, after a very nice shepherd's pie for lunch.

West Ham v Leicester

We went to West Ham on a Friday night to see them play Leicester. Not a brilliant game of football, but a fun night out with Paul's colleague Sergio from Argentina tagging along. We headed back to The Builder's Arms for a couple of drinks after the game.
