Bloody wind!!!

26 December 2016

We had a fantastic Christmas with a great ski in the morning followed by lunch, presents, drinks, dinner and games, but it was back to reality today, and the reality is that times are getting tougher after the past few days of wind. It has dried up out there and for the first time all winter I was looking for strips of soufflé to safely get us down the mountain. It’s still good skiing with great scenery, ambience and the fact that no one else is around, but it’s not the soft powder snow we all know and love. It has been brilliant having Millie along these past four days and she’s loved every minute of it, and thoroughly enjoys the ‘skinning’, but as of tomorrow she’ll be back on piste with Gill and Katie. I’ll miss you Mils!

My beloved Pittsburgh Steelers won their division with a stunning come-back victory over the Baltimore Ravens last night with a great final drive leading to the winning touchdown as time ran out. Check out the NFL highlights even if you know nothing about American football, because it’s a great intro. West Ham have a huge should-get-a-result type of game a Swansea today and another will would make 10 points from the last 12 and see us in a much more comfortable position. And good luck to Big Sam today as he starts his time in charge of Palace this afternoon. He’ll do a fantastic job there and I’ll be pulling for him as long as it doesn’t interfere with the Hammers status in the Premiership.

Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
