Rambles #7

It’s been a funny old week. For starters it has flown by. I got back from Skiing late on Saturday (11th), after a delayed takeoff and a taxi driver who seemed intent on doing 50 in a 30mph windy country place. I got very car sick. On Sunday, I cooked with my Dad for the…

Book Haul | Jan 9th

It only took me 9 days to break my promise and buy books! Really, there is no stopping me! I am my own worse enemy! I didn’t buy them because I was bored – which is usually the culprit. I bought them because I’d just finished ‘The One’ by John Marrs and wanted to read…

I was crying hysterically, suffering continuous panic attacks, swearing and angrily hating myself. I have tight calves, I’ve…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No. 3

Travel Ramble – Tignes No. 2

Today I skied more than yesterday, swore at an annoyingly small thing and even had a little cry! I remembered to put factor 50 on my face today. It has been so hot! I’ve felt like a baked potato in my ski wear. The last run I did today, I did to prove to myself…
