|Hello everybody. I bet you didn't expect to see me back in here..!!|
Last year I decided I needed to take some time away from social media.... and a few other activities.... to devote as much time as possible to my family.
It's been a very happy and contented year, if occasionally difficult and even traumatic at times, but now I'm ready to show my face again.
I hope you have all been well and enjoying life. Me..? It's been a challenging year with much happening, but it's been good.
We've had a death in the family, a "close run thing" with my dad and Amanda got a promotion. We both play netball every week for a team in the local league and still enjoy our rugby.
The Mini Tsuanami is doing well at school and still loves to swim. She goes to swim club twice a week and would go every day if she could. I'm still a stay at home mum but am now starting to plan my route back to work. It won't be easy. I've suffered too much skill fade in the last 6 or so years and Brexit has already hammered my profession. It will hurt it even more when / if UK finally leaves the EU so that's going to be interesting. Oh well.... life was never meant to be easy, eh..?
I'm looking forward to picking up on all that's going on here and getting involved again.... probably not as much as before, but certainly on a reasonably regular basis.
It's nice to say hello again. Now.... how many familiar names am I going to see when I scroll through the topics, I wonder...
|I really don't know how I'm going to feel this morning. Amanda's just gone off to work and I can't go back to bed even though I could get another hour or so in the kip before the day starts (it's 5.15 am here as I write).|
Megan starts school today. She's looking forward to it and I've got her new school clothes all laid out and ready for her. New everything. We went shopping for a lunchbox last Friday morning. She chose one with Peppa Pig on it. No surprise there.
My baby starts school today and I'm absolutely terrified. I know it's completely irrational of me, but I can't help it.
Will she be happy..? Will she make friends..? Will she like her teacher..? All stupid questions because I know she's going to be fine. She was very happy at playgroup and some of her friends from there will be starting at the same "Big School" today so she'll see faces she knows in the playground, possibly even in her class.
So all my worries are completely irrational and I know that, but I'm still going to feel a dreadful wrench when I wave her bye-bye as I leave her at the gate.
I've planned out a day that will keep me occupied until I have to go back to collect her at Going Home Time but I don't think I'll be able to concentrate on it.
Somebody please tell me I'm an utter idiot and should stop worrying because everything is going to be fine and she'll love every minute of it.
Kids eh..? Who'd have 'em..?
|Hi everyone. I just thought I'd drop a little line to the group, seeing as we're not doing anything this morning and I'm lounging around the hotel just chilling. |
We're on our winter holibobs, enjoying the snow and skiing here in Meribel Les Alleus in the French Alps. The skiing is first class and the prices are very reasonable, considering it's the height of the season.
We're not out on the piste today because there was a heavy snowfall overnight, with strong winds and the avalanche forecast has gone up to level 5 which is a bit scary, so we're staying off the slopes until things stabilise a little. What a shame..!! We flew out on Saturday and have enjoyed some really great skiing since we've been here. The apres-ski is great as is the nightlife, too. Most of the locals have at least some English and my French is passable enough for us to get by. Manda's got enough German to get by on too. It seems that nobody here speaks Cornish, though. How odd. <grinning>
It's the first time we've taken our winter holiday in the French Alps. We usually head off to Austria for our winter hols because we have friends who live in Wien (Vienna) and take the time to visit them. Skiing and meeting up with old friends, two birds with one stone. Bargain..!! I've wanted to come back to France for a while though though, as I came here on a school skiing trip when I was 14 and loooooooved it. Perhaps we may go back to Austria next year. Or possibly Germany. Trentino in the Italian Dolomites is THE place to go, but it's very expensive. Oh well, one day, perhaps.
Just hearing on the radio.... and I hope my translating is right.... that up at Les Arcs, they're snow blasting as an avalanche prevention measure. Glad they're not doing that here. I'd hate to see our lovely pistes ruined..!!
Well, I hope you're all having a good time putting the world to rights, as we do on TFS. I'm going to have a little scope around and see what's up, and then we're going into town for some lunch. Apres-ski without the ski, today. LOL.
I hope the weather settles down. Can't wait to get back on the slopes.
Have fun everybody.
