Happy Birthday Mom!

02 March 2018

It was going to be a difficult morning as we didn’t have too many options and a change of wind direction and snow were forecast for later in the morning. Chris, Andreas and I headed up to the Fornet to ski the Glacier Pers because we knew the snow would be excellent and if the weather came in we could ‘feel’ our way home. The light was very good for most of the morning and we enjoyed some lovely snow on the Glacier Pers itself, but the weather did come in with strong winds and snow making the visibility extremely poor and we really did need to ‘feel’ our way down in the end. It was a fantastic morning out with great snow, wonderful ambience and a ‘travelling safely in the mountains’ experience to finish it off. Meanwhile, Thomas was out there somewhere with his Ski Club group on their last day.

I thought the Guinea Pigs were brilliant last night and Chris’ who’s skied with me all week and played drums in a punk band in his university days was extremely impressed with the boys and he loved the way Hugo plays. It was fun having Viv, Wils, Rosie, Cliff and Sam along as well and we then had a great meal at the Cornice afterwards. I felt a little rough this morning, which doesn’t mix with flat-light very well, but the Irish Coffees were my idea. What an idiot!

I’d like to wish Louise a belated happy birthday for yesterday and it also marked the 18th year of going out with Al. It was nice to see them both bopping to the ‘Pigs’ last night. And I’d like to wish my Mom a very happy birthday as well. I better phone her as she doesn’t do computers! Stay tuned!

PS And thank you to everyone who has donated to Ghiselle’s Brain Tumour Trust run. It’s nice to see such a list of ‘Alpine’ clients, both old and new contributing!

PPS And thanks for dinner last night Cliff!
