snow (hey oh)
Right. That's pretty much your lot. After I finish work tomorrow, I'll be heading down to Gatwick to stay with some friends before heading over to the airport early on Saturday morning to catch a flight that will ultimately take us to Val D'Isere. The snow forecast is looking very good, and conditions are apparently already excellent, so fingers crossed we'll get some quality skiing done next week.
Fresh air, good company, a spot of sunshine and a little exercise. Perfect.
Not that skiing is just about the actual skiing, of course.
I like to sample the odd vin chaud.
Just to help keep warm, you understand.
....and perhaps a pression or two.
... and the occasional snifter now and again can't do too much harm either, right?
I do quite a lot of eating too.
Frankly it's amazing I actually get any skiing done at all.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to pack. I'm a nervous packer, and this may take some time, and I won't stop worrying about it until I get into the car.
Have a good week....
