Forgot to mention that I've started playing Badminton with the guys at work. Played for the first time last night and I was absolutely knackered. After the first 10 minutes I thought I was going to die, and I was getting horrendous pains in my back, but it cleared up. It was damn good fun, and by the end of the first hour I could have carried on for another I think. But instead we headed down the pub and had a hugely calorific meal and beer :-) In all seriousness I need to cut back on the food again. I've been going a bit mad with chocolate, and the weight is slowly creeping up. Plus I've not been doing any exercise. The next few days need to see more exercise, and I need to start cracking on to the Portuguese again.

The snow arrived while we were playing Badminton (I thought it was hail because the sports centre roof was making this clattering noise). Yet again it seems that the gritters have failed to do their job at the right time, and England descends into traffic chaos from a few centimetres of snow.

I must take some pictures of the snow and send to Lu as she's never seen real snow "in the flesh".

Fate may or may not be playing a hand again. I was in contact with an Internet acquaintance at Creative Labs who works at their head office in California, and I jokingly asked if he knew of any jobs in Brazil. He thought it was unlikely as their prescence in Brazil is limited as most of the South Americas operations are run from the USA. He emailed a colleague though, and coincidentally the Creative Labs Brazil office is run from Sao Paulo. By chance again, there just happens to be an opening for a Marketing Associate. I sent my CV. Fingers crossed.
