I found a solution to the riddle of last week. Did you?

2016 = (((((10-9)+(8*7)-(5-4))*6)*3))*2/1

At work I fell immediately back into long working days. Many actions are needed to define the activities and strategy for 2016 and that has kept me very busy and is likely to keep me buys for a couple of weeks more.

Because of this I arrived a bit late at Peter and Inge's place on Tuesday this week. I wanted to arrive around 18h30/19h in order to be able to spend some time with Mats, Lien, Peter and Inge. I arrived only around 19h45 and this caused the kids to end up in bed a bit too late. Mats, my godson, had prepared a nice little XMAS card for me and learned a little text as well. he was a bit nervous and missed part of the text, but he did it with lots of enthusiasm.

Next week Sunday we will have a full-family gathering with them and will have a more relaxed time to be and play together.

On Saturday Alex had a birthday party at a bowling place. The bowling lane suffered a bit from the ball throwing of the kids, but they had great fun. While Alex was bowling, I went for a run and Marina took Matías to a classical music concert where the kids got the opportunity to touch the instruments and play on them. Originally this concert was planned last year and we had planned to go all together but the concert got cancelled due to the terror threat. And because of the birthday party, Alex could not go anymore so we invited Zoe (a British friend from Matías' class) and her mother to join.

Today we had a relaxing day at home with a visit to the market this morning and a 1h30 run for me accompanied by Alex on his bike.

Marina and I are keeping up with the daily Yoga sessions. So that;s good.

There are no pictures this week.
