Happy holidays 2010!

merry christmas 2010!

And I’m back… kinda! It’s the first long break I’ve had all year so I’m trying to make the most of it before work resumes but what a year it’s been… and like that, we’re about to welcome in 2011! Bring it on I say.

Hope ya’ll had a festive Christmas, got awesome presents and ate lots and lots of food. I know I did… so much so that I think it’s time for a new scale! The one at home seems to be broken. Heh. >.<
