You can keep your Aspen, Gstaad, Kitzbühel, St Moritz….
Why would you need that when you could have this?
Ok, the skiing might be nice if you like sliding down a slope but for me, nothing beat sitting outside in the snow, with a cup of coffee and the sheep (oh yes, and my daughters) having done all the morning chores. The sun was shining and there was nothing more to do until later. We gave ourselves a well-earned break.
Of course there was the ever-present Monster who was busy explaining to Daisy what he had done to my car!
It was glorious. Everyone was around.
Madge was even brave and forced herself to make a huge effort.
Lambie couldn’t be arsed.
BeAnne ran up and down the track trying to entice us back into the house to feed her ham (which has her lunchtime drugs hidden – she doesn’t know).
After lunch, we were back outside with our duties. While I took Her Maj out for a potter up the hill, Daisy and Floss gave out the last-of-the-day haynets.
Everyone knows the drill now and waits with happy expectation.
This snow-break is not such a hardship if the weather is beautiful too.
