What could be more quintessentially Canadian than curling? It is truly our most national sport – lacrosse and hockey aside. Today, I took my National team out curling as part of a holiday celebration that included a ‘Colours” session, gift exchange, and post-curling drinks and munchies.
Myself, Donna and Gail are so fortunate to have such a brilliant team of professionals working for us. They are a fascinating international team made up of Canadians, Frenchmen, Hungarians and Brits and it was great to be able to share an afternoon together celebrating the holidays and providing them with a wee perk for all their hard work this year.

7) raise your hand if you think you’re now a curling addict!
For the record my team of Regina, Mhairi and myself won 5-2. Woohoo!
During the last winter olympics curling kind of gained a bit of fashion but then it went back into the shadows. Thank goodness another olympiad is coming soon.
I tried some curling when visiting in Canada. I really enjoyed it – once I learned not to fall on my butt lol.
It looks like you guys had a lot of fun – better than just sitting in the office and having sweets.
