We spent Christmas in Norwich with Elizabeth and her family and are now back in Megeve with the whole family, including the four grandchildren. It is very cold but sunny and, apart from the crowds on the slopes, the skiing is good. I expect that now the the new year is over most people will go back to work and next week we shall have the pistes to ourselves. There is more snow forecast for this weekend so we are keeping our fingers crossed for some excellent skiing next week. As I look out of our apartment window this morning there is snow on the balcony, the sun is just coming up over Jaillet and we are about to hit the slopes! What fun!
