off piste

The girls had their first ski lesson last weekend and LOVED it. Sadly, we aren't flying off at half term or even Easter, but many friends are and school is holding a second hand ski wear sale, so we are in the mood! I thought I'd had enough of snow and set off in a bit of a grump (Sunday mornings should be about lie ins!), however, it was amazing seeing them so excited as they put on skis for the first time and toodled off happily with their little groups. The funniest sight was when a very new "grown up" went "off piste" and ploughed into the five year olds, knocking them over one by one like dominoes. No one was hurt and everybody was laughing and my littlest champion learned, there and then to put a lost ski back on! The next lesson is booked for the end of the month and I'm busy trawling through my Esprit brochures, hoping for a last minute miracle deal.....
