Falling With Style!

Well where do I start…….. First Ever Blog!! (It’s going to be a personal and fun blog!)

Skiing… lets start with Skiing.

Just when I was getting fed up of the typical English weather, I decided to book a trip Skiing! So off to Switzerland we went! Bbbrrrr! Temperatures hitting – 18!!

What a beautiful place to visit, this would have been our third year out there. We are very lucky that my Partner’s Mother and Step Father own their own Chalet, so we would be silly not to take advantage! And an ideal travelling time of just an hour and 15 minutes into Geneva, brilliant when you also have an active three year old!

However, it would help if I could Ski! I am a typical Bridget Jones character, who falls over at every opportunity! It’s extremely embarrassing when my three year old, Harry, went to Ski School and on the third day was ‘bombing’ (Harry’s words!) past me on the Nursery Slopes! I thought I would be brave this year and head to a Blue Run (the easiest run of the Swiss slopes) which turned into a disaster! Instead of Skiing, I was falling with style! Except my style was twisting my knee and having to be rescued by the professionals off the mountain, on what they call a ‘Blood Wagon’! (Please do not laugh too much at the photo!) Suffice to say after this I stuck to the Nursery Slopes with my three year old son!!



My conclusion of our family holiday, mixed with the turbulence on the plane on our return to the UK (I have to take Vallium as I am a nervous wreck!) and the twisted knee, I think I should stick to the beautiful sites of the UK!  However, I was happy to think on the plane on the way home, and whilst I was freezing, feeling sorry for myself on the top of the mountain that I have my Will in place and Life Insurance!!!! And the Girls in the office knew where my documents were!! Panic Over!!!
