24th Sep 2006

We have had lovely weather here over the past couple of weeks, which has meant we have been able to get out on our bikes and go down to the lake for picnics.Today though its miserable and just when we were trying to get the outside of the dormer stained and finished.
The alterations are coming on well and Jonny has finished the plastering job up in Val D ‘Isere.
We had the neighbours round for sunday lunch yesterday, they loved the yorkshire puddings, I couldn’t make enough.They stayed most of the afternoon and then we went down the village on the bikes with the girls.

Martin from Grizzly ski is sorting out his new stock this year, once again he will have the latest skis and boots to hire.

We are trying to sort the menu for next season. We are having a few friends round on Saturday and will try out a new recipe or two.Jonny went to our friends’ “cave” the other day and bought a few bottles of red to try for next season. I think we nearly finished them all this weekend!!!!

Everybody is predicting a good season for snow again this year, due to the summer we have had. Lets hope they are right!!!!

The girls have settled into school although Fi has been a bit tearful some mornings. She is only just 3 so I suppose its only natural, but they do start school so early here.

Below is a photo from the other day before the weather broke.

Not much more to report at the minute so will say Bye and write again soon.
