An ass-kicking performance from Louise!

26 April 2015

I had a superb meal last night at Laura’s with Mike and Richard F, and when I left at 9:45 it was pouring with rain, and I expected 15 to 20cm’s and was raring to go this morning, but instead we had to settle for 5 to 10cm’s. Chris and I had a choice between the Grande Motte and the Fornet Glacier and chose the Fornet for two reasons: one, because we skied the Motte yesterday, and two, because Chris’ new client Dave had rented skis, skins and taken a taxi from Tignes to the Rond Point and turning around and skiing back to Tignes would have been just plain rude! Anyway, we had a fantastic morning around the glacier and stayed at altitude because the warm temperatures made going over the Col impossible. I must say that Louise skied brilliantly today and I was incredibly impressed by how dynamic she was. She totally inspired Paul and I, but unfortunately neither of us could respond and keep up with her. Bravo Louise, what a performance! (See pictures)

Thank you very much to Paul who invited Chris, Suzanne and I to the Perdrix for a last-ever meal, because after 42-years of great memories and meals (not to mention drinks) the Perdrix closes its doors as a drinking and eating establishment. We had a fantastic lunch, shared a magnum of Cotes du Rhone, and I walked off with a massive and beautiful house-plant for 10 Euros!

I’m off now to watch the Arsenal v Chelsea match and will continue later!

PS Andreas was playing in a team tennis match down the valley today and I haven’t heard what Thomas and Henry are up to.

PSS Thomas has just posted photos of his trip with Olivier to Switzerland, and the scenery is pretty spectacular. Bravo boys!
