As planned I watched the opening of the Olympics, and I found it very impressive and very beautifully done! But it had it's disadvantages too for me. As I wanted to try to catch some sleep before on Friday I tried already in the afternoon which was nosuccess. Just couldn't sleep. So in the evening I tried again, and it worked better, even too good, because I missed the chat on the forum! They should have wondered why I wasn't there, so later on Saturday I quickly sent an email to explain.
So Jan and I were rather sharp at the time the opening was taking place and after it we hopped into bed to have a few more hours of sleep.
Well, Saturday we took it easy on ourselves, I just did a few little jobs around the house and in the evening we were glewed to the tv screen again, to watch the speed skating for men, 5000 mtrs. AND WE HAVE THE GOLDEN MEDALL!!!! Yeah for Sven Kramer!!!
Then Sunday we had to go to the birthday party of Séverine in the afternoon. That was nice as always, and gave us the chance to catch a bit of fresh air too. And in the ecening there was another speed skating event, 3000 mtrs. for women. Our hopes weren't that high on this one and we were right. As expected it was won by the Czech girl Sablikova and she deserved it! Also want to congratulate my Canadian readers with the bronze medall of Christina Groves! Very well done!!!
I didn;t spent much time at the computer during the weekend, so I have to catch up a bit during the week LOL.
As I was blog hopping first before posting, I had a bad surprise at Edna's blog. The poor thing has broken her foot! I am glad it is "just"her foot, although it's not a nice thing either. And that happened just short before she will go on a holiday trip! Hopefully it will be healed enough, so that she still can go on that holiday, because she really needs that.
This kind of surprises we can without, don;t you think so?
I also think we have had enough winter now and that the snow should disappear and temperature will go up a bit more! So to encourage that I have a little kit for you in really Spring colours, so that at least we can have the feeling that the weather will change soon. I named it"Leave Winter Behind", it's nothing special, but has some nice papers in it.
Time to do a little bit of designing again and then do some work around here. Have a great day, be careful in the winter weather and see you around!
