We have just returned from a break in the UK as Anneha has been on her school holidays. We have come back to lovely sunny weather the trees look amazing colours and the temperature is dropping at night.
We have been collecting our wood for the winter and Jonny has bought a new chainsaw to cut it all to length. Its been a long job as we need about 15m square to last us.
My garden is just about finished have taken the leeks, pumpkins and beetroot out this week, infact I have just made some pumpkin soup and Jonny has found a new recipe for the beetroot.
We are off to a bonfire party at a friends although its not a done thing here the French celebrate Halloween more. We bought fireworks and the girls have made toffee.
We have got notice to apply for our lift passes for the season so we are getting excited. Our resort opens 17th Dec although Val d Isere opens end of November so we will be skiing then. I need to buy some new salopettes first as I ended up ripping mine last season. Snow is forecast this week down to 1950m so watch this space.
The hot tube is connected up and we are just waiting for a friend to finish the outside of it. Jonny has bought another vehicle so those of you that know Emily the blue Mazda van will not be seeing her this season.
