Remember remember

Yesterday was Guy Fawkes day but I FORGOT. Well actually I remembered but it was after the kids were in bed and we weren't about to wake them up. So we did it a day late and the kids teased me.

Plank wars

Elizabeth's favourite karate class is her Wednesday evening "Suba" class. Technically an adult class, it's run by Sensei Subhadra Shrestha and the exercises they do are much more challenging than many of the other classes and also very different.


Sensei Suba was away competing this week, so Sensei Robbie was running it. Towards the end of the class the participants were all asked to do pushups interspersed with a plank. They must have done fifty pushups and Elizabeth had been either doing pushups or holding the plank without a break for a good ten minutes when I suddenly realized there was a competition to see who could hold the plank longest. It got down to Elizabeth and an adult participant. The class ended, but they kept going. After about ten minutes, it was declared a tie! I was pretty impressed, since my personal ability to hold a plank is probably less than two minutes.

Christmas cake

Michael helped me and Grandma J make the Christmas cake today. We're a few days early (usually we do this on Remembrance day) because Grandma will be away!

Angie's last day

Angie had to leave again to go do some real work.  Hopefully we'll see her again for winterlude.

Switch witch and eating out

Thankfully for all concerned the switch witch showed up and took away the mountains of candy and replaced them with some toys.  Matthew got a race track, Amelia a Peppa Pig book for her leap frog device, Michael a singing microphone and Elizabeth a Bo staff.


After morning activities we went off to Dave and Karen's place for lunch with Angie and Janice. We then finished off the day by trying out a new restaurant Little Mac's.  It was good food but rather chilly and very very small.  Probably the sort of place that is more fun when it is nice out and you can sit outside.
