An emotional day!

11 December 2015

The sun is still shining and it’s getting more difficult every day. We really need some snow but the boys are doing a great job making the best of the situation. Today Thomas headed for the Tour du Balme, JM skied the Pays Desert en route to the Col des Fours, Andreas, Sasha and Tony were trying a new couloir in the Chardonnet, I went over the Col du Palet, Chris was under the weather and I’m not too sure what Oli was skiing. Hopefully a few more lifts will open tomorrow, such as the Aiguille Percee sector and Les Brevieres, which would give us a change of scenery and terrain. Fingers crossed!

I received a photo this morning from my sister-in-law of my Dad’s 80th, which was about 15-months before he died. It brought a tear to my eye and I’ve had a fairly emotional day ever since. I’ve been doing pretty well but I’m now missing and really looking forward to seeing the girls who arrived on the 20th. And fingers crossed we get some snow before then.

Sun is forecast for tomorrow, which will be perfect for the Men’s World Cup race. Stay tuned!

PS We’re having a meeting tonight about launching our new website but unfortunately Chris is ill and Thomas can’t come as Muriel has just returned home from the hospital and needs help with the children. She’s had an appendix operation but is now thankfully on the mend!
