Blimey, that was fun!

28 December 2015

Wow, what a morning! Just when I thought I was running out of tricks we were rewarded for a forty-minute ‘skin’ with a stunning morning of wonderful deep goblet. (see photos) Apparently the resort is quite crowded at the moment but we spent the morning alone and didn’t see anyone else. Chris was half-an-hour behind my team and Henry was 30-minutes behind Chris so we didn’t even see each other! Meanwhile, Thomas was back in action today and he and Andreas skied Tignes-way, and I’m not too sure what Pietro skied today. Everyone put together another solid outing as we all wait for some relief to fall out of the sky, and some snow may come towards the end of the week. Fingers crossed!

I’d like to give a special mention to Penny who won the ‘ass-kicker-of-the-morning’ award. She was second up our 40-minute ‘skin’ behind Craig, who is a Tri-Athlete, holding the boys off over the last 10-minutes, and then skied brilliantly all morning. Bravo Penny, I was really impressed!

The girls had an absolutely fantastic time yesterday. After skiing in the morning they took themselves swimming with their friends in the early afternoon, then they all went tobogganing before finishing off with supper out at the Burger Bar! Gill and I ended up eating alone and having a pretty relaxed evening!

It’s a big day in the Premiership and England is starting to resemble a good Test side again as they take on South Africa. Stay tuned for more news and photos tomorrow.

PS We’ve just received an email from David O who reports a ‘brilliant’ morning with Thomas and is now looking for space for the rest of the week.
Well done boys!
