School holidays over

The week, the last of the school holidays, went by in a flurry of work and cross country skiing, with a steady influx of old friends to catch up with. I'd get away most days up the hill with Dougal at just after 1 pm feeling a bit stressed after trying to do everything before going, but that would soon evaporate as I settled into doing some serious Kms up there: I went to the new Meadow Hut [see photo] each day, and beyond. There was just enough snow for a great time, but the skiing was not the mindless sort as grooming has been confined to that which can be done by skidoo, as there is not enough cover to support the perfection an 8 ton machine can can bring, so constant concentration was required to keep everything pointing in the right direction.

Yesterday the house work tasks had accumulated so I stayed at home [under the cloud of a serious and grey inversion], quite happy to potter about. We should get some more snow this week. In the meantime work now needs a shove along, and I have a dental appointment this pm.
